Engineers & workers from NCC today removed formwork (casting molds) from pier P-11 to finish casting their first pillar for Mumbai Metro’s 16.5km Line-7 between Andheri East and Dahisar East. They were awarded package CA-03 between Magathane & Dahisar East in April 2016 after which they commenced soil testing works in July 2016. Overall, this is the 2nd pier to get ready on the line after J Kumar Infraprojects just completed casting their 1st pier for package CA-02 in Malad.
Here are some images of the 11.9m tall pier P-11 in front of the Western Edge near Borivali’s Magathane Station:
The pier is currently being cured using a brown gunny/hessian cloth which will be removed in the coming days to reveal the finished product. Whenever that is done, I’ll update this post and share via my Twitter handle.
