This news totally escaped my radar! Towards the end of November, workers from Longjian – KEC JV began launching 28m long U-girders to construct the viaduct of the Delhi Metro Pink Line (Line-7)’s 12.098 km extension between Maujpur and Majlis Park.
Since then a total of twelve 165 ton U-girders have been placed in Jharoda Majra.
This package-level major milestone was achieved 12 months after Longjian – KEC JV was awarded Delhi Metro Phase 4’s second contract for Package DC-02 (Maujpur – Sonia Vihar – Majlis Park) in November 2019 with a contract value of Rs. 1,080 crore and completion period of 30 months.
Their scope of work includes building the entire Pink Line’s 12.098 km viaduct, bridge over the Yamuna River (work on it began in June), a PWD double-decker flyover and 8 stations at Yamuna Vihar, Bhajanpura, Khajuri Khas, Sonia Vihar, Wazirabad Surghat, Jagatpur Village, Jharoda Majra and Burari.
With this development, U-girder launching activity to build Phase 4’s 3 corridors is underway on two out of four elevated packages: DC-01 (Magenta Line) and DC-02 (Pink Link). The ones pending are Sam-Gulermak’s DC-03R (Magenta Line) and YFC Project’s DC-04 (Silver Line)
