After recently winning the Detailed Design Consultant (DDC) contract for Vijayawada’s Metro, Ayesa – a Spanish technical services firm has now been awarded a similar contract for Mumbai’s 16.5 km Andheri (E) – Dahisar (E) Metro line!

This 16.5 km line with 16 stations is commonly referred to Line 7 or Metro 7, and construction contracts for it were awarded to J Kumar Infrastructure, NCC and Simplex Infrastructure in April. Since then J Kumar Infra has started utility shifting & soil testing works.

Piling works are expected to start once the monsoon rains subside in August-September. The line’s viaduct will consist of sleek U-girders which have previously been used to build Mumbai’s Line 1 between Versova & Ghatkopar and more recently in KochiNoida, Lucknow and sections of Delhi’s Metro.
