MPSPL Completes Trial Assembly for Pune Metro’s Steel Girder

Last week, Modern Prefab Systems Pvt. Ltd. in Bhillai, Chhatisgarh completed trial run assembly for a 36 m long steel composite girder fabricated for use on the 31.254 km Pune Metro Phase 1 project.

Weighing approximately 2000 MT, this steel composite girder will be launched by Afcons – SPCPL JV for building a portion of either the Ruby Clinic or Bund Garden station on the 7.657 km eastern Reach-3 section of the 14.665 km Aqua Line which’ll connect Vanaz with Ramwadi.

Afcons – SPCPL JV was awarded Reach-3’s Rs. 470.43 crore contract in January 2019 for the construction of 7 elevated stations at Ramwadi, Kalyani Nagar, Yerawada, Bund Garden, Ruby Clinic, Pune Railway Station and Mangalwarpeth.

Further details on the girder’s exact use and final placement position within the station are a little sketchy at this time, so it’ll interesting to see how things play out. Here are a few older images:
