AGRA (Metro Rail News): Construction works on the Underground (UG) Section of Agra Metro’s Corridor-I from Taj East Gate to Sikandara that is marked between Taj Mahal Metro Station to RBS College Metro Station, is going to commence from today in presence of Mr. Kumar Keshav, MD, Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC). Construction will start from Agra Fort Metro Station with the formation of Diaphragm Wall (D-Wall).

The D-wall can be understood as the boundary of a Metro Station. Before starting the construction of an Underground Metro Station, this wall is constructed as a security enclosure around it. The D-Wall will be constructed with the rectangular panels. This wall will exist up to a depth of approximately 21 meters.

UG Metro Stations To Be Constructed With Top-Down Method
In all, Seven Metro Stations are to be built in the Underground Section for the first corridor of the Agra Metro Rail Project, viz Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Jama Masjid, Medical College, Agra College, Raja Ki Mandi and RBS College.

The underground stations of Agra Metro will be prepared with the Top-Down Method i.e. construction work will be done from top to bottom. This system is being adopted to minimize the impact on traffic as the barricading on the road will be reduced after the construction of the first floor starting from the road level. The construction work of the station below the road will continue and the movement of vehicles on the road will also continue smoothly eventually.
