DE-LAUNCHING OF ABANDONED CIRCULAR RAILWAY’S GIRDERS ALONG NOAPARA-BIMANBANDER METRO CORRIDOR

DE-LAUNCHING OF ABANDONED CIRCULAR RAILWAY’S GIRDERS ALONG NOAPARA-BIMANBANDER METRO CORRIDOR

Metro Railway has been executing the Noapara-Bimanbander Extension Project. For executing this project along this alignment, most of the existing abandoned viaducts of Circular Railway are required to be dismantled.

About 100 girders stretched over the busy Jessore Road and o­n some parts of VIP  Road are to be removed  in order to facilitate construction of proposed new  lines of Metro Railway from Dum Dum  Cantonment   to    Bimanbander via Jessore Road.  De-launching of these abandoned girders have been going o­n in spite of nationwide lockdown.  This work is very crucial considering heavy traffic movement along the congested arterial road connecting Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport.

One 600  MT capacity crane has been deployed to remove these abandoned structures along this stretch.  Yesterday o­ne such girder was de-launched successfully.  Elaborate arrangements like removing road signal posts, telephone and electric cables,  roadside railings etc. o­n this stretch have been made .   In order to protect the road surface, about 300 mm thick layer silver sand has been spread o­n this road before movement of the crane. 

So far eight such girders o­n the busy stretch of Jessore Road   and VIP Road have been pulled down.
