This weekend, Larsen Toubro & HMM Infra, Delhi Metro’s contractor & subcontractor for the CC-28 project of the 58.596 km Pink Line, completed pushing a steel truss bridge to its final resting location over the Indian Railways’ Delhi – Fazilka line at Shakurpur!
After securing a railway block in March, the contractor began work to push this 54m long bridge in April, but had to abandon it due to a design issue with the supporting trestles. After the design was rectified and a new railway block was secured, work restarted last week – see images here: Work Resumes on Pushing Delhi Metro’s Steel Bridge at Shakurpur.
