KEC JV Begins Ahmedabad Metro Phase 2’s Track-Work

Vijay Nirman Company – KEC International – Emrail JV last week began pouring concrete to install standard gauge rails for the Ahmedabad Metro Phase 2 project.

This new 28.254 km phase 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.

This system milestone was recorded at Randesan Station on 6.478 km Package C2 under construction by Ranjit Buildcon.

VNC – KEC – Emrail JV was awarded Phase 2’s track-work contract in March 2023 financed by Agence Française de Développement (AFD).

Their scope includes supplying and installing ballastless tracks through-out the main-line and depot-line connecting to Indroda Depot in Gandhinagar.

Ahmedabad’s Phase 2 is chugging along at a decent clip. Back in May-end, Afcons Infrastructure started launching segments for a ~700m bridge over Sabarmati River linking GNLU and GIFT City.
