CCECC – KEC Resumes Work for Delhi Metro Phase 4’s Line-8 Extn

KEC International Ltd. on Thursday night announced the resumption of work at their casting yard in Mundka for a 12.375 km elevated extension (DC-01) of Delhi Metro’s Line-8 (Magenta Line) between the Vikaspuri Ramp and Haiderpur-Badli Mor Station, after being suspended for more than a month due to the nationwide COVID-19 related lockdown.

China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation – KEC International (CCECC – KEC) JV’s Package DC-01 is the first section of the 61.679 km (and growing) Delhi Metro Phase 4 project on which work started in December 2019 with a deadline of 30 months.

This package combined with other civil packages, DC-03R, DC-05 & DC-06 (see package & status details), will form a 28.92 km extension of Line-8 from Janakpuri West towards RK Ashram through 22 new stations.

DC-01 includes 10 elevated stations at Keshopur, Paschim Vihar, Peeragarhi, Mangolpuri, West Enclave, Pushpanjali, Deepali Chowk, Madhuban Chowk, Prashant Vihar & North Pitampura.

The yard in west Delhi will in the future churn out U-girders, I-girders, pier caps and parapet wall segments for the viaduct. More images of it, shared in February 2020 when it was being setup, can be viewed here.

At 12.375 km, DC-01 is the second longest civil construction package for a metro project in India. The longest is package CC-06 built by Larsen & Toubro for Delhi Metro’s Phase 3 project. The scope of that included constructing a 13.875 km viaduct of the Violet Line from Badarpur to Escorts Mujesar in Faridabad with 9 stations.

    Dear sir.

    Recently, I completed cooperative experience with DMRC Project & construction company where I perform the responsibility in the department of safety officer. I believe my background and experience will help me to be an asset of your company in a very short time. I have around 10.4 years’ experience of safety officer. I am equally comfortable working independently or as a part of team. I am looking for a profile, which should give me a great value addition in terms of skills. Kindly look in to my candidature for the post you have. I can assure you that I would be able to meet all your expectations. If you favour me, with an appointment, I shall do my best to work to the entire satisfaction of my superiors and I will prove myself as an asset of your organizations.
    Thanks & Regards
    Sher khan
