INDORE (Metro Rail News): Dilip Buildcon Ltd. (DBL) launched the last set of precast segments for Package IN-02A/01 on April 10th. The final 1871 precast segment placement brings the metro construction closer to completion. The viaduct, consisting of 179 spans, is constructed using precast segments, each 8.5 meters wide. These segments are cast at DBL’s casting yard along the Super Corridor.

This package is a part of the Indore Metro Phase 1, Line 3 (Yellow line) project. It covers a 6.29 km stretch and connects key city areas, including ISBT Metro Station and Mumtaj Bag Colony Station.

This is the first civil contract awarded by MPMRCL for the Indore Metro project, with a budget of Rs. 228.96 crore. It was originally supposed to be completed in 27 months but is now 66 months behind schedule. Package IN-02A involves the construction of a 5.29 km viaduct, essentially an elevated track between ISBT/MR10 Flyover and Mumtaj Bag Colony. 

Despite the progress, the project has faced challenges, leading to significant delays. The reasons for these delays are unclear but may include issues like land acquisition and coordination among various agencies involved.

Stations Under Construction

URC Constructions is building eight stations within this section. These stations are crucial nodes for commuters and are located at ISBT, Chandragupta Square, Hira Nagar, Bapat Square, Meghdoot Garden, Vijay Nagar Square, Radisson Square, and Mumtaj Bag Colony.

In addition to the precast segments, the metro project has seen other significant developments. For instance, in March, the DBL launched four 36-meter-long steel composite girders over the Western Railways’ tracks in the MR-10 neighbourhood.
