HCC – KEC JV (Hindustan Construction Company Ltd. – KEC International Consortium) last week completed casting the 1st U-girder for Chennai Metro Line-4’s 7.945 km Package C4-ECV-02 connecting Porur – Poonamallee Bypass.
The first girder is 27.90 meters long and weighs 164 MT. HCC – KEC JV’s casting yard in Poonamallee will eventually consist of four casting bays from where I estimate approximately 600 girders, ranging from 18m to 28m, will be cast.
Besides constructing the viaduct from chainage 17982.240 to chainage 25928.186 and Poonamallee depot-line, HCC – KEC will build 9 stations at Chennai bypass crossing, Ramachandra Hospital, Iyyapanthangal Bus Depot, Katupakkam, Kumanan Chavadi, Karayan Chavadi, Mullai Thottam, Poonamallee Bus Terminus, Poonamallee Bypass.
