Work Begins on Mumbai-Ahmedabad HSR’s Anand-Nadiad Station

Larsen & Toubro and its subcontractor ‘Zed Geotechnics and Construction’ on Friday kicked off construction work for Anand-Nadiad Station of the 508.17 km Mumbai – Ahmedabad High Speed Rail (MAHSR Bullet Train) project.

L&T’s team had started basic site preparation works in February. On Friday morning, they held a bhoomi puja and started test piling work during which a piling rig bored and lowered a 1800mm diameter pile cage vertically to a depth of 28 meters.

Snaps shared by followers Prasad Zantye & Abhishek Khade:

Anand-Nadiad station lies on civil Package C6 (chainage 401.898 to 489.467) – the third longest of the entire line which connects Vadodara with Ahmedabad through one station and a minor depot at Anand-Nadiad. Its exact location is just south-west of Utarsanda Railway Station, close to Nadiad – view exact location.

Package C6’s Rs. 7,289.00 crore contract was awarded by the National High Speed Rail Corporation (NHSRCL) in November 2020 after L&T emerged as its lowest bidder in October. L&T is chasing a 1,370 days (3.75 years) deadline and started piling work in March 2021 at Rayka Village near Vadodara.

      That’s just for C6’s civil work. Construction practicalities will push civil completion beyond that date.

    The bullet train project fails to connect all district headquarters on its route and its economic viability
    is in question as the traveling public will prefer fast trains on the existing routes.
