Work Complete for Delhi Metro’s Truss Bridge at Shakurpur

This weekend, Larsen Toubro & HMM Infra, Delhi Metro’s contractor & subcontractor for the CC-28 project of the 58.596 km Pink Line, completed pushing a steel truss bridge to its final resting location over the Indian Railways’ Delhi – Fazilka line at Shakurpur!

After securing a railway block in March, the contractor began work to push this 54m long bridge in April, but had to abandon it due to a design issue with the supporting trestles. After the design was rectified and a new railway block was secured, work restarted last week – see images here: Work Resumes on Pushing Delhi Metro’s Steel Bridge at Shakurpur.

      Hi, station finishing work is always completed during the trial runs. They are couple of gaps in the viaduct at anand vihar and welcome. If those are plugged/built by June end, then the September time-frame should be possible.
