Afcons Begins Work on Kolkata Metro’s Line-6 at City Centre 2

Afcons Infrastructure has started ground work to construct Kolkata Metro Line-6’s Package ANVS – a 3.519 km mostly elevated extension from Sub CBD-2 Station to Kolkata Airport (Biman Bandar).

This section of the 32 km Line-6 (Kavi Subhash New Garia – Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport) was originally envisioned to be underground, but large-scale land acquisition for its ramp and station at Teghoria (named Rabindra Tirtha) forced Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd. (RVNL) to convert a large potion of it – barring an approximate 950m airport stretch – into an elevated line.

Follower Rupraj Sengupta spotted new barricades including a geotechnical soil investigation tripod at City Centre 2:

Afcons emerged as the lowest bidder for this section among 4 in December 2020. Their package includes the construction of 2 new stations at Chinar Park (formerly Rabindra Tirtha) and VIP Road (Haldiram), and the following viaduct & underground sections:

  • Viaduct (2 sections)
    Section 1: (CH: 25900 approx.) to CP:801 (CH:27200 approx.)
    Length: 1300M (Approx.)
    Section 2: CP: 801 (CH: 27200 approx.) to start of ramp (CH:28450 approx)
    Length: 1250M (approx.)
  • Ramp/Underground
    Start of Ramp (CH:28450) to end of Design Limit (CH: 29400)
    Length: 950M (approx.)

This is Afcons’ third package on Line-6. Their other packages include ANV1 with a 5.75 km viaduct between New Garia and VIP Bazaar and Package ANV3 with a 5.16 km viaduct between NICCO Park and CBD-1.

    i am from kolkata but i live in Indore
    this line is near the house of my mausi
    i can see half work done everywhere
    i mean that theres no continuous stretch for much time
    i dont know that track is being laid or not but last time i visited kolkata the viaduct work was still going
    it will be veryy good if they complete this line bcz the road adjacent to it is full of traffic
    and in nights you cant think of getting rid of jam
