Workers from Ranjit Buildcon today started piling work on Radesan Road – the first step of construction – for building Ahmedabad Metro’s 28.254 km Phase 2 project.
The team had started pile load testing works earlier this month for Package C2 (GNLU to Gandhinagar’s Sector-1), and has now moved to piling works, with the first bore at Pier P9 taking place today.
Ranjit Buildcon was awarded Phase 2’s 6.478 km Package C2 in late-2020 with a contract value of Rs. 417.90 crore. Their scope of work includes 5 stations at Raysan, Randesan, Dholakuva Circle, Infocity, and Sector-1. A small 0.679 km ramp will be built leading to a new depot at Indroda Circle.

I hear Afcons Infrastructure has subcontracted piling works to IB Infrastructure and a piling machine has arrived onsite to build the 14.36 km Package C1 section’s foundation between Motera Cricket Stadium towards GNLU with a spur towards GIFT City.
As shared earlier – So far roughly 6 km out of 39.259 km in Phase 1 has become operational due to a host of reasons, so Ahmedabad has now joined Bengaluru (2015-2017) in becoming the only two cities where two phases have or are being constructed simultaneously.
