AGRA, INDIA (Metro Rail News): On 12th November 2021 Sam India Builtwell re-launched their first U-girder for the Agra Metro Phase-1 project (4 km Taj East Gate – Taj Mahal Ramp on the central tunnel on Fatehabad Road).
It was recorded at Trident Chowk near the Taj East Gate Station site using a 28-meter duct. Workers had begun making U-girders of various sizes in Bamrauli Katara by July 2021.
Sam India will launch 196 steps to build a high-line viaduct, forming an extensive 7 km Priority Corridor between Jama Masjid – Taj East Gate. The remaining three kilometers are still under contract, with the UPMRC receiving seven bids for the Package AGCC-02 underground tunnel project this week.
Sam India Builtwell was awarded the Package AGCC-01’s Rs. 273 crore by Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) in October 2020, which includes the construction of a three-line high viaduct with three stations at Fatehabad Road, Basai and Taj East Gate. Sam India started Pier work in February 2021 and introduced the first pier cap in August 2021.
According to the given sources about 115 piers have been plastered. In addition, all 48 T-girders have been introduced at Taj East Gate Station, while the UPMRC is chasing the October 2022 deadline to begin the trial using three Alstom trainers training from the PAC Depot.
