Engineers from Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd. (RVNL) on Monday began pouring concrete to cast segments for Indore Metro Yellow Line‘s 10.927 km MR10 Road – Gandhi Nagar section (Package IN-03).
RVNL was awarded the 33.53 km Indore Metro Phase 1 project’s Rs. 1034 crore contract in September 2021 with a 847 days (2.32 years) deadline. 8.5m wide segments cast at their yard, spread across 15 hectares, near TCS Chauraha will be launched to form the line’s viaduct.
Besides a 575m depot-line, they’ll also be constructing 9 elevated stations at Gandhi Nagar, Super Corridor 6, Super Corridor 5, Super Corridor 4, Super Corridor 3, Super Corridor 2 and Super Corridor 1, Bhawarsala Square and MR 10 Road.
Snaps via RVNL’s Twitter handle:
By back of the hand calculations, I estimate approximately 3000-3200 segments will be cast for this section’s superstructure.
