Mumbai Metro Line 6’s Girder Launched over Line 2A by JKIL


J Kumar Infraprojects’ engineers last week launched a 48 meter special steel girder for the 15.18 km Mumbai Metro Line-6 (Pink Line) project which will connect Swami Samarth Nagar – Vikhroli via 13 elevated stations.

The girder over Line-2A’s viaduct on Link Road was placed near Infinity Mall for Package BC-03 of the project. Its Rs. 867.75 crore contract was awarded to J Kumar – CRTG JV in August 2018 by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).

Their scope involves the construction of a 6.079 km viaduct from chainage – 822.508m to 5257.400m and five stations at Swami Samarth Nagar (Lokhandwala), Adarsh Nagar, Jogeshwari (W), JVLR and Shyam Nagar.

Bidding for Line-6’s key systems (rolling stock, signaling, telecom etc.) has still not started, so at this time I do not see commercial operations starting before 2025. Its tender notice is dependent on the finalization of the line’s depot which is planned to be built at Kanjurmarg but got muddied up with Line 3.
