On the night of December 23, the CEC-SAM JV launched the first U-shaped girder for the NC01 section of the 30.016 km Noida – Greater Noida metro line! The girder was placed between piers 37 & 38 whose pier caps were placed barely 12 days ago on the road between Sectors 51 & 72. The first girder on the entire line was launched on December 18 and so far 4 girders have been placed on the NC03 section.
• NC01 spans from Sector 71 to Sector 137
• NC02 spans from Sector 137 to Sector 149
• NC03 spans from Sector 149 to the Depot Station in Greater Noida
• The section from Sector 71 to Knowledge Park V will be constructed in the next phase.
Here are some images from the launch. Please be prepared for some neck exercise!
