Sam India Builtwell on Monday launched final of 196 U-girders for Agra Metro Phase 1 project’s 6 km Priority Corridor connecting Jama Masjid Station – Taj East Gate Station.
This major construction milestone on 14.25 km Line-1 was recorded at the depot-line that juts off south of Taj Mahal Station towards PAC Depot where Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) received their 1st Alstom 3-coach Metropolis train-set last week.
The 27.90m long curved U-girder weighs approximately 160 MT.
Sam India Builtwell is responsible for the 6 km Priority Corridor’s 3 km elevated section (Package AGCC-01) between Taj Mahal Ramp – Taj East Gate on Fatehabad Road.
UPMRC had awarded Sam India with its Rs. 272.95 crore contract in October 2020 which includes building the line’s elevated viaduct with 3 stations at Fatehabad Road, Basai and Taj East Gate.
Afcons Infrastructure – SAM India Consortium in February started tunneling works on the priority corridor’s 3 km underground section between Jama Masjid – Taj Mahal. So given the quantum of work (civil & system) pending, I reckon we might see commercial operations first start on the elevated section. Stay tuned…
