The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has partially offloaded two contracting firms engaged in civil works on the SA Road-Thykoodam Kochi Metro corridor and handed over pending works to other firms, to adhere to the June-2019 deadline to commission the 6-km stretch.
The two firms will complete the works entrusted to them by October, leaving the rest to their new counterparts. The works taken off from one of the firms, which has not readied the 1.2-km viaduct in the Vyttila-Thykoodam stretch in time, include girder launch at Vyttila, slab casting and readying of a few box girders, said DMRC officials. They expressed amazement at the firm being unable to complete civil works in the 1.2-km stretch, which included a metro station

at Vyttila Mobility Hub, four years since piling began. It had earlier been offloaded from doing the rest of the works in the SA Road-Pettah stretch.
The cost of civil works which the two firms failed to execute will be recovered from them and given to the new firms that have been identified to complete the pending works, the officials added.
Meanwhile, the DMRC has revised deadlines to take the metro up to Pettah. While the corridor up to Thykoodam will be commissioned as per schedule by June 2019, the stretch up to Pettah will be ready only by September 2020. The metro agency had earlier fixed March 2020 as the deadline to ready the portion.
Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) is at present engaged in shifting utility lines between Thykoodam and Pettah and widening the stretch. It is expected to be handed over to the DMRC within a fortnight. “Completion of civil works is expected to take 18 months. Rest of the works like laying rails, readying signals and trial runs of trains might take another six months,” DMRC sources said.
The widened Champakara bridge is expected to be commissioned by December 2019, as against the earlier deadline of September 2019. The 1.5-km Pettah-Thripunithura railway station stretch, which KMRL is expected to execute, might take yet another over two years to be ready by 2021 end. Acquisition of land in the stretch is yet to begin.
