NCC Begins Pier Work for Patna Metro’s Viaduct

Workers from NCC in the past fortnight have started tying rebar to form piers at Bhootnath for constructing Patna Metro’s 6.107 km Malahi Pakri – New ISBT section of the 14.05 km Line-2 (Patna Junction Railway Station – New ISBT).

Construction works on Patna Metro’s Phase 1 – India’s 21st system to enter the construction stage – started with piling works in December 2020. At least two piers are now visible with staging works underway to facilitate the start of pier casting.

Here’s a video by a local YouTuber named The Incredible:

NCC was awarded Package PC-01’s Rs 552.93 crore contract by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) in September 2020 with a 30 month deadline.

Their scope includes building this 6.107 km section’s viaduct and 5 elevated stations at Malahi Pakri, Khemni Chak, Bhoothnath, Zero Mile and New ISBT. It also includes a viaduct leading to the New ISBT Depot, as well as a small rake-interchange viaduct at Khemni Chak connecting to the 16.85 km Line-1.

Construction work is mostly going on Bypass Road (Khemni Chowk – Zero Mile), but I hear new barricades are also up near Malahi Pakri Chowk.

Technical bid evaluation is still underway for Phase 1’s two other packages, so it’ll be a while before ground work begins elsewhere in the city.
