2 Spans Completed for Ahmedabad Metro on Vastral Road

J Kumar Infraprojects, the contractor for Ahmedabad Metro’s 6 km Vastral Gam – Apparel stretch of the 20.536 km east-west metro line has completed building 2 spans of its viaduct! They had commissioned their first Launching Girder on the night of February 19 (see images) in the Nirant Cross Roads in the eastern part of the city.
