Gantry Erected for Delhi Metro Pink Line’s Yamuna Bridge

Longjian – KEC JV on Friday launched their first cantilever construction (CLC) gantry for a new bridge over the Yamuna River as part of Delhi Metro Pink Line’s 12.375 km extension between Maujpur and Majlis Park.

From pier P188 to P196, Phase 4 project’s new Yamuna Bridge (Delhi Metro’s 5th) north of Signature Bridge at Wazirabad will be 560 meters long. Its construction was approved by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) in January 2020.

Longjian – KEC JV was awarded Delhi Metro Phase 4’s Package DC-02 (Maujpur – Sonia Vihar – Majlis Park) in November 2019 with a contract value of Rs. 1,080 crore and completion deadline of 30 months.

Their scope of work includes building the line’s 12.375 km viaduct, bridge over the Yamuna River, a PWD double-decker flyover and 8 stations at Yamuna Vihar, Bhajanpura, Khajuri Khas, Sonia Vihar, Wazirabad Surghat, Jagatpur Village, Jharoda Majra and Burari.

The first test pile for the bridge was bored and concreted in June 2020 to a depth of 29 meters.

Another gantry will be erected in the coming weeks to cast the bridge’s segments in-situ on either side. Back in December, TPL-CCECC JV completed Ahmedabad Metro’s 165m CLC bridge at Thaltej – see details and images.
