LUCKNOW: Managing Director of Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC), Kumar Keshav visited the underground metro stretch from Charbagh to Hazratganj and reviewed the progress of the on-going civil construction activities for 3.5 km long stretch connecting Hussainganj, Sachivalaya and Hazratganj including Charbagh ramp.
The stretch extends from Charbagh through an underground ramp and then rises above at KD Singh Babu Stadium. The construction started in second half of 2015 after doing a through survey of nearby buildings and its impact on surroundings, traffic study and soil testing for strength.
Starting his visit from
Charbagh, Keshav oversaw the progress of the work going-on for the ramp and instructed the civil contractor GULERMAK and Tata Project Ltd (TPL) to expedite the work connecting the tunnel. After Charbagh, the MD visited the Hussainganj, Sachivalaya and Hazratganj metro construction sites and inspected all the work going on for underground stretch including the work of the diaphragm wall.
Keshav asked the contractor to complete all the work efficiently and in a time bound manner. This underground corridor comprising 3 stations is an integral part of 23 km long North-South corridor starting from Chaudhary Charan Singh Airport to Munshipulia, which is to be completed by 2019.
Though state government has set a deadline to complete this N-S corridor and run train on compete stretch by March end, 2019, LMRC's principal advisor, E. Sreedharan has given an internal deadline to complete the civil construction by December 2018 itself. Kumar Keshav said that his team would try its best to complete civil construction of entire stretch by December 2018.
LMRC is slated to complete the construction of the priority section from Transport Nagar to Charbagh of about 8.5 km and run metro train for public on it by March 26, 2017. This priority section is also a part of N-S corridor.
