Shankaranarayana Constructions (SNC) this week cast their first pier in Doddanekundi to construct Bangalore Metro’s 56 km Blue Line on the Outer Ring Road (ORR).
This feat by SNC for the ORR Line’s 8.377 km Package 2 (Kodibeesanahalli – KR Puram) was recorded for Pier number ORP-473 located opposite Bagmane Tech Park. The pier stands 13.7 meters tall and will have its precast pier cap placed in the coming months to support U-girders.
This isn’t the first pier for the ORR Line though. Afcons Infrastructure working on Package 1 cast their first pier earlier this month between Bellandur and Ibblur – see details and a snap prior to casting.
SNC was awarded ORR Line Package 2’s Rs. 623.55 crore contract in May 2021 with a tight 27 month deadline.
Their scope includes constructing the line’s Kodibeesanahalli – KR Puram section’s 8.377 km viaduct, 7 elevated stations at Kodibeesanahalli, Marathahalli, ISRO, Doddanekundi, DRDO sports complex, Saraswathi Nagar and K R Puram, a 1.097 km depot-line linking to the existing Baiyapanahalli Depot and a 0.30 km pocket track.
