In Uttar Pradesh’s Mohiuddinpur town, Larsen & Toubro on Thursday completed casting their first pier cap in-situ (on-site) for the RRTS project’s Package 3 Lot-2. The feat was accomplished at the 7m tall pier P1054.
Lot-2 with a total of 615 piers connects Modinagar North Station with Shatabdi Nagar Station through 5 elevated stations at Modinagar North, Meerut South, Partapur, Rithani & Shatabdi Nagar. Out of these, Partapur and Rithani stations will serve as stops on Meerut Metro.

In the early morning hours of Friday, Afcons Infrastructure’s subcontractor Tara Chand Logistics launched their 1st pier cap for Package CA-28 at pier P38 Near Balkum Naka Metro Station in Thane.
The team in February had started casting piers in Thane for this 12.811 km western section of Line-5 which will connect Kapurbawadi with Dhamankar Naka in Bhiwandi. The 7 seven stations en route will be built at Kapurbawadi, Balkum Naka, Kalher, Purna, Anjurphata, and Dhamankar Naka.
