In the early hours of July 7, workers from the J Kumar – CRTG JV launched their first U-girder at Yogi Nagar in Borivali West for building package AC-01 of Mumbai Metro’s 18.6 km Line-2 from DN Nagar to Dahisar East. Unlike the launch event held for Line-7 in May, the event here between piers #191 & #192 was rather low-key with workers placing two 24.90m U-girders weighing 150 MT one after the other.
The J Kumar-CRTG JV is responsible for constructing both packages AC-01 and AC-02 of the line and completed casting their first pier in January 2017 and erecting the 1st pier cap in May. They completed casting the first batch of U-girders for both this line and the 16.5 km Line-7 at their Bandra yard in January 2017, and as per the MMRDA’s website, a total of 84 U-girders had been cast by May 30 2017.
Besides the elevated viaduct, Package AC-01 also includes the construction of 8 stations at Anand Nagar, Rushi Sankul, I C Colony, Eksar, Don Bosco, Shimpoli, Mahavir Nagar and Kamraj Nagar –
