CCECC – KEC JV’s 1st U-Girder Ready for Delhi Metro Phase 4

The U-girder is 28 meters long, weighs 165 tons and has now been moved from the casting bed to a stacking pedestal within the casting yard located in west Delhi’s Mundka neighborhood. Casting works had commenced on June 24, and this yard will in the future churn also churn out pier caps, I-girders and parapet wall segments for the viaduct.

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. Earlier this month, workers had started casting works for the viaduct’s first pile cap in Keshopur.

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

    Nice! What’s the typical time gap between this milestone and the erection of these structures onsite?

    Hi, I stay in Paschim Vihar Outer Ring Rd. and with the elevated road, it’s already a concrete jungle 🙁 I’m really concerned about the loss of greenery here. Do you know if they are chopping down any trees here between Janakpuri and Peera Garhi line? How can one find out and protest? Thanks

      Hi, I don’t keep a track of tree cutting proposals. I’d recommend checking with DMRC through a RTI.
