Waterproofing Begins at Pune Metro’s Shivajinagar Station

After Swargate Station, waterproofing works have now also started at the lowest level of Pune Metro’s Shivajinagar Station which will serve as the northern-most underground station of the Phase 1 project’s 16.589 km Purple Line between PCMC – Swargate.

Pile treatment work and the placement of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) sheets is being carried out by Buildcon Consultants Pvt. Ltd. on a subcontract from Gülermak – Tata Projects Ltd JV which is responsible for constructing both underground packages UGC-01 & UGC-02 of the Purple Line.

The platform level of Shivajinagar is about 18 meters deep. Workers in January here started dismantling the twin tunnels built by Terratec TBMs S78 and S79, which are currently at Civil Court. From the looks of it, dismantling works are half-way done.

Here are some snaps by Buildcon Consultants:
