Sam India Begins Kanpur Metro’s Station Finishing Work

Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) on Friday night announced on Twitter that station finishing works had commenced at IIT Kanpur Station on the 8.728 km priority corridor of Kanpur Metro’s 23.785 km Line-1 between IIT Kanpur and Motijheel.

Sam (India) Builtwell Pvt. Ltd. was awarded the Phase 1 project’s Rs. 150 crore contract for architectural and interior finishing works (Package KNPCC-04) at nine elevated stations back in September with a completion period of 14 months.

Finishing work has started on the priority section of Kanpur Metro (IIT to Motijheel). Metro stations are now beginning to take their form. Some pictures of the block work happening at the IIT station…

Afcons Infrastructure is rapidly building this section’s civil structure through a Rs 734.56 crore contract for Package KNPCC-02R awarded in September 2019.

As they complete each station’s civil structure, they will hand over the site to Sam India to perform minor civil and architectural finishing work which includes site development, water/sanitary installation, fire fighting, electrical & mechanical (E&M) works and installation of pre-engineered roofs.

The 9 stations on Kanpur’s Priority Corridor are located on NH34 (GT Road) at IIT Kanpur, Kalyanpur Railway Station, SPM Hospital, CSJM Kanpur University, Gurudev Chauraha, Geeta Nagar, Rawatpur Railway Station, Lala Lajpat Rai Hospital and Moti Jheel.

UPMRC is chasing a deadline to start trial runs in November 2021 (no typo!) using their 3 coach Bombardier train-sets and then start commercial operations in December or latest by January 2022.

Even if they start operations in the summer of 2022, they will easily beat their past record in Lucknow where they took just 36 months from the start of construction by Larsen & Toubro (September 2014) to opening (September 2017) its 8.48 km priority corridor.
