Workers from NCC Ltd. in Pune today completed launching precast segments on top of Bharat Ratna J.R.D. Tata Flyover at Nashik Phata for building the 10.795 km Reach-1 (PCMC – Range Hills) section of the 31.25 km Pune Metro Phase 1 project.
The two spans over the flyover with 8 precast segments each are at a height of about 25 meters above the ground, and located between Bhosari and Kasarwadi stations of the 16.589 km Purple Line (Line-1) which’ll connect Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) and Swargate through 14 stations.
