J Kumar Begins Work on Aerocity Station of Delhi Metro’s Silver Line

J Kumar Infraprojects on Friday began work to construct the diaphragm wall (D-wall) of 23.622 km Delhi Metro Silver Line‘s underground Aerocity Station.

Aerocity Station will serve as the western terminal of Delhi’s mostly-underground new Silver Line, which on its eastern-end will connect Tughlakabad. Users here will easily be able to switch and hop on to trains of the 22.7 km Airport Express Line (built in Phase 2) and 106 km Delhi – SNB RRTS line in the future.

J Kumar’s 6.116 km Aerocity – Kishangarh section is on the western-end of the line and comprises of twin tunnels, and 4 stations at Aerocity, Mahipalpur, Vasant Kunj & Kishangarh from chainage (-) 760 mt. to 5356.285 mt.

Next up, the team will start lowering reinforced cages, if not already, and pour concrete to form the station box.

I hear J Kumar will be deploying 3 tunnel boring machines all sourced from Terratec – 2 refurbished and 1 new. Confirmation is awaited, so stay tuned!
