Back on May 28, J Kumar Infraprojects commenced casting work for the first ever pier of Mumbai Metro’s Line-4A (Green Line) in front of Om Sai Plaza on Ghodbunder Road in Owale, Thane West.
This small 2.88 km northern extension of the 32.32 km Line-4 will connect Kasarvadavali to Gaimukh through new 2 stations at Gowniwada and Gaimukh. Bids for its construction (Package CA54) were invited in March 2019 and J Kumar Infraprojects went on to be appointed as the civil contractor in September 2019 through a contract valued at Rs. 342 crore.
Back in March, follower Viren Nawani had spotted rebar-tying work commencing for the line’s piers.
Here are a few images shot on May 28:
Casting molds are usually deshuttered (removed) within 3-5 days, so the pier must be ready by now. If someone from J Kumar or MMRDA is reading this or if you live close-by, and have an image of it, then feel free to contact me and I can plug in your image for others to see.
