Afcons Begins Work on Delhi Metro Silver Line’s Underground Section
Afcons Infrastructure has started barricading works for constructing the eastern section of the Delhi Metro’s 23.622 km Silver Line which will connect Aerocity – Tughalakabad via 16 stations.
This exciting development comes just weeks after the firm was awarded Phase 4 Package DC-07’s Rs. 1669.20 crore contract by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).
This 6.981 km section will connect Sangam Vihar Station’s east-end and Sarita Vihar Depot via 3 stations at Maa Anandmayee Marg, Tughlakabad Railway Colony, and Tughlakabad where it will form an interchange with the Violet Line’s station built in Phase 2.
Afcons will be constructing a total of 8 tunnels for which DMRC requires a minimum of 5 tunnel boring machines (TBMs) to be deployed.
Here are some snaps shared with me by RS_Live from YouTube. Check out his video embedded below for some nice visuals:
In the coming weeks, we’ll see other pre-construction activities picking up along the line’s route such as geotechnical investigations, GPR surveys, utility mapping & diversion, trial trenching works etc.
