KANPUR (Metro Rail News): According to the recent developments, the Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) has completed more than half of the piling work in the nine-km-long Priority Corridor being constructed between IIT and Motijheel for the Kanpur Metro Rail project.
Piling refers to digging the ground and putting iron net under it in order to lay the foundation of the structure.
A total of 2,330 piles are to be prepared between IIT and Motijheel, out of which around 1,300 piles have been prepared so far. 45% of the work is yet to be completed. Construction of only eight piles remains between IIT Kanpur and Gurudev metro station.
As per the media reports, the civil construction of the Priority Corridor commenced on November 15 last year and the target to complete 1,277 piles by the end of July had been set. UPMRC has surpassed this target as it has prepared as many as 1,300 piles so far. The metro development work has gained a rapid pace, one official said.
The recent things suggest that if the things continue to be done in the same way then we may expect Kanpur Metro to get operational by the end of 2021
