Ranjit Launches Ahmedabad Metro Phase 2’s 1st Pier Cap
Workers from Ranjit Buildcon Ltd. on Friday launched the first ever pier cap for Ahmedabad Metro’s 28.254 km Phase 2 project on Radesan Road.
A total of 195 pier caps with a length of 9800 mm and weight of 65T are planned to be launched for Phase 2’s 6.478 km Package C2 (GNLU to Gandhinagar’s Sector-1).
The team began pier concreting works in April and casting pier caps at their yard near Gandhinagar’s Infocity Sector 2 in May. As of today, 15 pier caps have been cast.
Ranjit Buildcon was awarded Package C2 in late-2020 with a contract value of Rs. 417.90 crore. 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.

Afcons Infra working on Phase 2’s Package C1 (Motera Stadium to GNLU and GNLU to GIFT City) in May-end cast their first pile cap, but I don’t believe the first pier has been cast yet.
