Sam Completes Agra Metro’s Piling & T-Girder Erection
Sam India Builtwell in the past week recorded two important milestones for Agra Metro Phase 1 project’s 4 km Taj East Gate – Taj Mahal Ramp elevated corridor on Fatehabad Road.
Last week, the final of 684 piles was constructed for pier foundation work. The first ceremonial pile for the 14.25 km Line-1 was bored in December 2020 during a virtual ceremony hosted by Prime Minister Modi.
And then this Sunday, Sam’s station team with support from Appolo Cranes completed erecting all 144 double T girders for the platform level of Taj East Gate Station, Basai Station and Fatehabad Road Station. Launching work had started on August 31, 2021.
Sam India Builtwell was awarded the 7 km Priority Corridor’s 4 km Package AGCC-01’s Rs. 272.95 crore contract by Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) in October 2020.
Technical bids from 7 firms are currently being evaluated since November 2021 for the remaining 3 km underground portion (Package AGCC-02) of the Priority Corridor connecting Taj Mahal – Jama Masjid stations. Due to bidding delays, there’s no way UPMRC will be able to open the Priority Corridor’s 3 km underground section by their original target of 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
