HMM Infra this week completed the trial assembly of a 60 meter long steel truss bridge at their workshop in Ambala! The bridge weighing 460 MT will now be dismantled and transported 750 km away to Lucknow’s Avadh crossing where it will be reassembled on-site to form a key piece of Lucknow Metro’s 8.48 km priority corridor.

Here are some images from earlier this month while assembly was taking place:
The trial assembly process began in the middle of January. Here are 2 images I shared through my Twitter account – @TheMetroRailGuy. To view each image simply click on it.

HMM Infra has already began mobilizing their men and machinery on-site and expects to start assembling the bridge in May. Whenever that happens, I’ll make sure to post about it. In the meanwhile, check out some brilliant images of a similar bridge recently pushed into place by HMM Infra at Delhi’s Punjabi Bagh: Delhi Metro Completes Pushing Truss Bridge at Punjabi Bagh.
