GURUGRAM (Metro Rail News): Gurugram Metro’s ambitious project to establish a new 28.50 km ring line connecting HUDA (Millennium) City Centre with DLF Cybercity took a significant step forward as Cengrs Goetechnica initiated geotechnical soil investigation work on Wednesday.

Approved by the Indian Government’s Union Cabinet in June 2023, this entirely elevated line boasts 27 stations across both new and old Gurugram. The project falls under the jurisdiction of the newly formed Gurugram Metro Rail Ltd. (GMRL).

Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation Limited (HMRTC) entrusted Cengrs with the crucial task of conducting geotechnical investigations for the line’s first phase. Awarded in February 2024, the Rs. 53.90 lakh contract involves drilling 130 boreholes, collecting samples, and analyzing soil profiles along the 12.76 km stretch from Millennium City Centre to Sector 9.

The insights gleaned from Cengrs’ investigation will be pivotal in shaping the civil construction tender documents, enabling infrastructure companies to make well-informed financial bids and employ suitable machinery, methods, and technology during construction.

The mainline spanning 26.65 km will seamlessly connect Millennium City Centre and Cybercity through 26 stations. Additionally, a 1.85 km spur will link Basai Village to Dwarka Expressway, facilitating access to the depot.

However, progress on the Detailed Design Consultant (DDC) contract for the project faced a setback as HMRTC received only one bid from SYSTRA MVA Consulting India earlier this week. The fate of the bid remains uncertain, casting doubts on the possibility of commencing civil construction in 2024 due to the extensive time required for detailed designs and the subsequent bidding process.
