NEW DELHI, (Metro Rail News): In a significant step towards the construction of India’s first high-speed rail corridor, the National High-Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) on Saturday has casted first full-height pier near Vapi, Gujarat at Chainage 167 on Mumbai Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail Corridor which will run through 12 stations connecting Maharashtra, Dadar & Nagar Haveli and Gujarat.

According to NHSRCL, the average height of the pier on this corridor is approximately 12-15 meters and the exact height of this casted pier is 13.05 meters, which is almost equivalent to a 4 storey building. The pier is casted with 183 cubic meters of concrete quantity and 18.820 MT of steel. The special shuttering arrangement in the lift is one of the major features of the corridor providing better quality in 8 hours.

This major construction milestone has been achieved despite a severe shortage of manpower and other logistical challenges because of the ongoing pandemic and the ongoing monsoon season in the region. There is a number of such piers planned to be casted in the coming months paving way for the first high-speed rail corridor.

NHSRCL is the executing agency mandated with building India’s first high-speed rail corridor between Mumbai & Ahmedabad.

Mumbai–Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail Project is India’s first high-speed rail line connecting Mumbai with Ahmedabad with a route length of 508 km. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2023 but has been delayed due to land acquisition issues-particularly in Maharashtra and the Covid-19 pandemic with now expected to become fully operational by 2027 with some portions in Gujarat to become operational by 2023.

Once completed, the travel distance time between the two cities will be reduced to 2 hrs with trains operating at top speed of 320 km per hour.
