Nagpur: MahaMetro launched the girder of Manish Nagar railway overbridge (ROB) over the railway line in the early hours of Saturday. It is a bow string girder and the ROB is first in the state to use this type.
NVP Vidyasagar, assistant general manager of MahaMetro, said that the girder was launched by asking a block of four hours from Central Railway (CR). “It is the longest block in the area except for that taken for the Khapri ROB,” he added.
The Manish Nagar ROB required a girder of 64.38 metre. “Of this
we had launched girder of total 19m length on both sides of the railway track beforehand. On Saturday we launched the bow string girder of 43.48m length and 12.6m width. The operation was accomplished in 2.30 hours,” said Vidyasagar.
The girder was fabricated in Pune and brought to Nagpur in a huge trailer by road. The fabrication work had begun in March this year. The weight of the girder is 360 tons and is of E-350 grade. It has been prepared as per specifications of Research Design and Standards Organization (RDSO), a ministry of railways undertaking.
Vidyasagar further said that around 500 ton steel was used to support the 350 ton girder.
He admitted that the work on the project had been delayed and attributed it to Covid lockdown and labour shortage. “From mid-March to May beginning work had completely stopped. The work of fixing the girders is done by expert welders. Most of the welders had gone back to their native villages during the lockdown. We had to find local welders. Work of many welders was not found satisfactory while recruiting them and they were rejected. It was with great difficulty that we found the necessary workforce,” said the official.
