Kanpur Metro - Girder Erection

Kanpur (Metro Rail News): On 31 May 2024, the Kanpur Metro Phase 1 project reached a major milestone with the successful launch of two 30-meter-long steel composite box girders over the Naubasta Flyover in corridor 1 extending 23.785 km from Kanpur to Naubasta.

As part of Package KNPCC-07, the steel girders were installed 6 meters above the flyover’s deck, which comprises national highways 19 & 27 (NH-19 & NH-27). This crucial placement is strategically located between Kidwai Nagar and Vasant Vihar stations.

To construct the 5.27 km viaduct for this section, the Kalpataru Projects International Ltd (KPIL) has successfully launched 25 and 28-meter-long U-girders so far. However, the flyover’s substantial width necessitated the use of longer and more durable steel girders. In the next few days, four additional shorter steel girders will be deployed and linked at both ends to form two continuous 45-meter-long steel spans.

In June 2022, the Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) awarded the KNPCC-07 civil contract, valued at Rs. 514.61 crore, to KPIL. This includes the construction of five elevated stations at Baradevi, Kidwai Nagar, Vasant Vihar, Baudh Nagar, and Naubasta.

Kanpur Metro Phase 1

The 32.385 km Kanpur Metro Phase 1 received approval from the Central Government’s Cabinet in February 2019. Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the project’s foundation stone on March 8, 2019. Presently, the priority section of Kanpur Metro Phase 1 is operational, extending 8.7 km between IIT Kanpur and Moti Jheel. The remaining portion of Phase 1 is likely to be completed by December 2024.
