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.
Package C3 consists of 7 elevated stations at Sachivalaya, Akshardham, Juna Sachivalaya, Sector-16, Sector-24 and Mahatma Mandir.
This is the 3rd and final section of 28.254 km Phase 2 which will see Ahmedabad’s north-south Red Line getting extended by 22.838 km from Motera Stadium to Mahatma Mandir via 20 new stations with a 5.416 km spur from GNLU to GIFT City which includes 2 new stations.
