NCC Casts 1st Pier for CA-03 Section of Mumbai Metro’s Line-7

Engineers & workers from NCC today removed formwork (casting molds) from pier P-11 to finish casting their first pillar for Mumbai Metro’s 16.5km Line-7 between Andheri East and Dahisar East. They were awarded package CA-03 between Magathane & Dahisar East in April 2016 after which they commenced soil testing works in July 2016. Overall, this is the 2nd pier to get ready on the line after J Kumar Infraprojects just completed casting their 1st pier for package CA-02 in Malad.

The pier is currently being cured using a brown gunny/hessian cloth which will be removed in the coming days to reveal the finished product. Whenever that is done, I’ll update this post and share via my Twitter handle.

      Line 2 – no one. DMRC is executing the line

      Line 7 – they’re going to assign & announce the GC very soon. Until then, DMRC will overlook & assist MMRDA.

    Even on Line 2A the first Pier is few days away from being constructed. One can see the Steel work being readied at Bangur Nagar (Link road Goregaon W) by J. Kumar. The pilling work for the stretch is also on with full steam.
