RBL Casts Ahmedabad Metro Phase 2 Package C3’s 1st Pier

Ranjit Buildcon Ltd. last week poured concrete to cast the very first pier for Ahmedabad Metro Phase 2 project‘s Package C3 connecting Sector-1 – Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar.

This pier (P13) is part of the 7.553 km long elevated Package C3 which was awarded to Dilip Buildcon (DBL) in October 2022 with a contract value Rs. 723.45 crore. Construction works were subsequently subcontracted out to Ranjit Buildcon.

Ranjit’s team had started pile load testing works in January 2023 between Sector-1 and Sector 10A and then moved to piling works – the first step of the construction process – at this same site on February 1.
