MUMBAI (Metro Rail News): The first mile of the continuous viaduct for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail (MAHSR) project has been finished, marking a significant advancement in its development.

The fact that this erection was completed using Made in India Full Span girder launcher is also notable.

The 1,100MT full-span launching apparatus was designed and produced domestically by M/s Larsen &Toubro at Kanchipuram, Chennai.

To create it, M/s L&T collaborated with 55 Micro-Small Medium Enterprises (MSME). India is now joining the exclusive club of nations that design and produce such equipment as Italy, Norway, Korea, and China.

The Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail Project (MAHSR) will use innovative construction techniques including the Full Span Launching Methodology (FSLM) to build its 508 km long viaduct superstructures.

Erecting the precast girders for a double-track viaduct as a single unit, this method will expedite the launching of girders. FSLM is quicker than the segment-by-segment launching method, which is typically used to build viaducts for metro systems, it has been employed all over the world.

The 508 km long MAHSR project, which has 12 stations, would cover 348.04 km in Gujarat, 155.76 km in Maharashtra, and 4.3 km in the Union Territory of Dadra & Nagar Haveli.

Upon completion, the High-Speed Rail will operate at 320 Kmph, covering the entire distance in approximately 2 hours with limited stops and 3 hours with all stops.

Land acquisition for the MAHSR project has been completed in Gujarat and Dadra and Nagar Haveli at 100% and 98.8%, respectively. Land acquisition is now progressing at 75.25% in Maharashtra.

The bullet train project’s executing agency, the National High-Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL), wants to move construction along quickly.

162 km of piling and 79.2 km of pier construction have already been finished. Additionally, the Sabarmati Passenger Terminal Hub is almost finished.
