Afcons Infrastructure on Friday night poured concrete to cast the 1st base slab for the Airforce TBM Launch Shaft of Delhi Metro’s 23.622 km Silver Line which will connect Aerocity – Tughalakabad via 16 stations.
This shaft is located near Sangam Vihar Station and will be used to commission two tunnel boring machines this summer. One of them is Robbins TBM 372 which passed factory acceptance tests (FAT) in Gurgaon’s Sector 74 this February.
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation had awarded Afcons with Package DC-07’s Rs. 1669.20 crore contract in January 2022.
Afcons’ 6.981 km Package DC-07 will connect Sangam Vihar Station’s east-end and Sarita Vihar Depot via 3 stations at Maa Anandmayee Marg, Tughlakabad Railway Colony, and Tughlakabad where it will form an interchange with the Violet Line’s station built in Phase 2.
