Longjian–KEC Begins Piling for Delhi Metro Line-7’s Extension

Following a small puja, workers and engineers from Longjian – KEC JV today officially began piling work for the construction of a 12.558 km extension of Delhi Metro’s Pink Line (Line-7) between Maujpur and Majlis Park.

Piling work commenced this afternoon for pier P274 in Delhi’s Wazirabad neighborhood situated on the western bank of the Yamuna River. On the eastern bank, workers had last week bored a test pile for its 560 meter long bridge over the river.

Longjian – KEC JV was awarded Delhi Metro Phase 4’s second contract for Package DC-02 (Maujpur – Sonia Vihar – Majlis Park) in November 2019 with a contract value of Rs. 1,080 crore and completion period of 30 months.

Their scope of work includes building the line’s 12.558 km viaduct, bridge over the Yamuna River, a PWD double-decker flyover and 8 stations at Yamuna Vihar, Bhajanpura, Khajuri Khas, Sonia Vihar, Wazirabad Surghat, Jagatpur Village, Jharoda Majra and Burari.
