Ranjit Buildcon Ltd. (RBL) on Friday celebrated the launch of their final of 354 U-girders for civil Package C2 of the 28.254 km Ahmedabad Metro Phase 2 project.
This major construction milestone for 6.478 km Package C2’s viaduct was recorded on top of piers P12/15 and P12/16 using a 27.9m U-girder. The very first U-girder was launched in November 2021 on top of piers P9/33 and P9/34.
C2 connects Gujarat National Law University (GNLU) to Gandhinagar’s Sector-1 and is a part of Phase 2’s Priority Corridor. Its viaduct also includes two 47 meter long steel composite girders, launched in August 2023, near the upcoming Infocity metro station.
Gujarat Metro Rail Corporation (GMRC) had awarded Ranjit Buildcon with Package C2’s civil work in late-2020 with a contract value of Rs. 417.90 crore and 30 month deadline.
Besides the viaduct, their scope of work includes 5 elevated stations at Raysan, Randesan, Dholakuva Circle, Infocity, and Sector-1. A small 0.679 km ramp will be built leading to a new depot at Indroda Circle where RBL has setup their casting yard.
VNC – KEC – Emrail JV had started track-work on Package C2’s viaduct back in August 2023. The start of basic trial runs here now primarily depends on the completion of 14.36 km Package C1‘s 8.12 km Motera – GNLU stretch which is under construction by Afcons Infrastructure.
