Patel Infra Casts Surat Metro Package CS1’s Final Segment

Patel Infrastructure on Friday cast their final 8.5m wide box segment to construct the viaduct of Surat Metro Phase 1 project’s 11.6 km Package CS1 between Kadarsha Ni Nal – Dream City.

The major milestone on the project’s 21.61 km Line-1 (Sarthana – Dream City), which runs along Bhatar Road and Althan Road, was recorded 25 months after casting works began at Patel Infrastructure’s yard located in Budiya village (view on Google Maps). This is just east of the project’s Dream City Depot which is under construction by ITD Cementation India.

Gujarat Metro Rail Corporation (GMRC) had awarded Package CS1’s construction in January 2021 to Sadbhav Engineering – SP Singla Constructions (SEL – SPSCPL) JV with a 30 month deadline. The consortium in turn subcontracted out a portion of works to Patel Infra for an undisclosed amount.

Ten elevated stations in Package CS1 are being constructed at Kadarsha Ni Nal, Majura Gate (interchange with Line-2 connecting Bhesan – Saroli), Rupali Canal, Althan Tenament, Althan Gam, VIP Road, Woman ITI, Bhimrad, Convention Center and Dream City.

Chasing a 30 month deadline, construction should have been wrapped in July 2023, so this package is clearly running behind schedule.

Here’s a video uploaded by a local YouTuber that shows the progress made on the line’s superstructure as of December 2023. Bear in mind, launching of segments had started roughly a year prior in January 2023.
