This feat was recorded at Trident Chowk near Taj East Gate Station’s site using a 28 meter girder. Workers had started casting U-girders of various sizes at Sam’s casting yard at Bamrauli Katara in July 2021.
Sam India will launch a total of 196 girders to build the line’s elevated viaduct which forms a bulk of the 7 km Priority Corridor between Jama Masjid – Taj East Gate. The rest 3 km of it is currently under bidding with UPMRC receiving 7 bids for Package AGCC-02’s underground tunneling work this week.
Sam India Builtwell was awarded Package AGCC-01’s Rs. 272.95 crore contract by Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) in October 2020 which includes building the line’s elevated viaduct with 3 stations at Fatehabad Road, Basai and Taj East Gate.
As of today, approximately 115 piers have been concreted and all 48 double T-girders have been launched for Taj East Gate Station, with UPMRC chasing a tight October 2022 deadline to start trial runs using 3 coach Alstom trains out of PAC Depot.
