Work Begins for Mumbai Metro Line-5’s Kasheli Creek Bridge

Afcons Infrastructure this past week began work for a 550 meter bridge over Kasheli Creek of Mumbai Metro’s 24.9 km Line-5 (Orange Line) which will connect Thane and Kalyan.

The team is first constructing a temporary jetty to aid in the bridge’s construction – and this activity marks the start of marine work for this new elevated line in north-eastern Mumbai.

Most of the construction activity so far has been concentrated on-ground between Kapurbawdi and Kasheli Creek. Afcons had started launching U-girders in March 2021 and had launched 68 U-girders as of last Monday – see more progress details at the bottom of this post.

Afcons’s 12.811 km Package CA-28 of Line-5 connects Kapurbawadi with Bhiwandi and consists of 7 seven stations en route at Kapurbawadi, Balkum Naka, Kasheli, Kalher, Purna, Anjurphata, and Dhamankar Naka.
