4th Launching Gantry Commissioned for Ahmedabad Metro’s EW Line

Last month, while J Kumar Infraprojects was commissioning their 3rd launching gantry at Apparel Park, they in fact also commissioned a 4th one at Vastral Gam – at the opposite end of their 6 km portion of Ahmedabad Metro’s 20.536 km east-west line! The first two LGs were set up in the Vastral station area and commissioned in February & May after which they rapidly began launching precast segments to build the elevated viaduct’s spans.
