At roughly 7 pm yesterday night, the CEC-SAM JV which is in-charge of constructing all 3 sections (NC01, NC02 & NC03) of the 30.016 km Noida-Gr.Noida metro line erected the first pier cap on pier# 963 between the Delta-1 and Depot stations in Greater Noida!

Here are some images:
NC03 is progressing the fastest among all three sections of the line which measure 9579m, 10193m and 10244m respectively. Tonight the contractor will be erecting the pier cap for pier# 964 after which this activity will become a regular affair. Once the pier caps for ~20 piers have been placed, then precast U-shaped girders will be brought out of the yard and placed on top of the piers. I expect that piece of construction to start taking place in January! 🙂
