Engineers from Pune IT City Metro Rail Ltd. on Friday began pouring concrete to cast segments for Pune Metro’s 23.3 km Line-3 which will connect Megapolis Circle in Hinjawadi with Civil Court in Shivajinagar.
8.5m wide segments cast at their yard in Tathawade will be launched for the line’s viaduct, which is being developed by PMRDA on PPP mode through a 35 year concession agreement signed with Tata’s TRIL Urban Transport Private Limited and Siemens Project Ventures GmbH (TRIL UTPL + SPVG).
Tata Projects Ltd. is responsible for the line’s civil construction work while Siemens will provide systems-related project management, turnkey electrification, signaling, communications and depot works (equipment).
By back of the hand calculations, I estimate approximately 7200-7500 segments being cast for the line’s superstructure.
On the line’s route, rebar for multiple piers have started appearing in Hinjawadi and E-Square near Pune University – view recent images here.
