Another gap on the Delhi Metro’s 58.596 km Pink Line will soon be plugged 😀
Larsen & Toubro and its subcontractor HMM Infra yesterday restarted pushing a steel truss bridge over the Indian Railways’ Delhi – Fazilka line at Shakurpur in west Delhi for package CC-28! The 54 meter long bridge is 19 meters tall and was supposed to be pushed into its final resting place in mid-April, but work stopped due to a design issue with the supporting trestles which forced the crew to abandon work, rectify the design and reapply for a railway block through the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.
With work restarting yesterday, HMM Infra (responsible for manufacturing & pushing the Punjabi Bagh bridge as well) now aims to finish pushing the bridge over this weekend, so do expect a follow-up post from me soon.
