[Pics] Piling & Load Testing Underway for Noida – Greater Noida Metro

Things are moving along quite nicely for the new 28.8 km metro line between Noida and Greater Noida. After my August update, here are some brand new images of the line shot at various locations in Noida & Greater Noida. While most of the route has been barricaded, piling work is under way at multiple locations as you will soon see below.

As a reminder, the entire line is under construction by Continental Engineering Corporation who won all 3 civil construction tenders. They are expected to place the first girder to form the viaduct by Diwali (in November) so as to meet the June 2017 deadline for civil works.
