Engineers from Patel Infrastructure on Thursday began pouring concrete to cast segments for Surat Metro Phase 1 project’s 11.6 km Kadarsha Ni Nal – Dream City section.
8.5m wide segments cast at their yard in Dream City will be launched for the 21.61 km Line-1’s Package CS1 viaduct which was awarded in January 2021 to Sadbhav Engineering – SP Singla Constructions (SEL-SPSCPL) JV. The consortium subcontracted out a portion of works to Patel Infra for an undisclosed amount.
Construction on the project was formally launched by PM Modi in January 2021 with a ceremonial bore taking place. Since then, SEL-SPSCPL JV has been engaged in piling activity. A new video shot by a local YouTuber in fact shows they’ve tied rebar for a couple piers as well.
The 10 stations in SEL-SPSCPL’s section are coming up at Kadarsha Ni Nal, Majura Gate (interchange with Line-2: Bhesan – Saroli), Rupali Canal, Althan Tenament, Althan Gam, VIP Road, Woman ITI, Bhimrad, Convention Center and Dream City.
On Friday, GMRC invited bids to construct Line-2’s first section between Bhesan – Adaraj – Majura Gate with 11 elevated stations – see scope & details.
