ITD Cem Casts Kolkata Metro Airport Station’s Top Slab
Workers from ITD Cementation India on Tuesday completed casting the top slab of Kolkata’s Biman Bandar (Airport) Station which will serve the city’s 6.87 km Line-4 (Noapara – Airport) and 29.87 km Line-6 (New Garia – Airport) in the future.
ITD was awarded this station’s Rs. 315 crore contract by Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL) in 2017 after they emerged as its lowest bidder, narrowly beating Tata Projects.
Casting works for this massive new underground station, with 4 lines and a train stabling facility, started on Monday (December 7) morning and ended after 30 hours of continuous pouring of 1730 cubic metre concrete with the help of 20 concrete mixtures.
Besides this, workers on December 8 also lowered the final rebar cage (18m × 5m × 1m) for casting the diaphragm wall of a pedestrian subway which will connect the station with Jessore Road and the Airport’s Terminal. Following that, 90 cubic metre of concrete was used to complete concreting works.

Kolkata me new line konsi khulegi.
Current status of line 3,4,5,6 or more any?
Line-1’s 4.11 km extension to Dakshineshwar should open up in Q2 2021. Trial runs are going to start anytime now.
Line-5 is dead. Rest are in various stages of construction with openings expected from 2023 onwards.
Kolkata Metro Line 2 will open in 2022 probably
1 tunnel is pending and 2 TBMs need to be pulled out from the mid-shaft, as you might know. Both these steps should be completed by the end of 2021.
Rest of the steps (system installation, testing, inspection, finishing works) will easily push the line’s opening to 2023. It’s going to be interesting to see how this all plays out 🙂
Any chance to do with Line 5 Metro Kalyani Expressway ???
Not sure I understand the question. You mean, any chance of Line 5 being built on Kalyani Expressway instead? They explored possibility of it in 2018. Haven’t heard anything since then.
Line 5 along Kalyani Expressway might be built for the planned Kalyani International Airport
This line is being built by Kolkata metro from metro rail bhavan on park street not rvnl so design won’t be anything to write home about!
Is there any provision for vehicle parking near airport metro
I don’t know
Any update on Joka Metro?
