UPMRC completes work of first pile cap in just 18 days

After resuming civil construction of viaduct and stations on May 15, the Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation completed the first pile cap on 2nd June 2020. UPMRC MD Kumar Keshav congratulated the metro engineers on this development.

UPMRC had received approval to resume the civil construction work of viaduct and stations by the Kanpur district administration on May 15. As the civil work of the Priority Corridor being built between IIT to Motijheel was resumed with the available labourers, the UPMRC team completed the construction of the first pile cap on 2nd June 2020, in just 18 days.

Besides, UPMRC has also mobilized six rig machines for piling work and roped in available workers in the process. The corporation has constructed 64 piles so far amid the lockdown. Congratulating the team of UPMRC engineers on resuming the work with full spirit, MD Keshav said, “Unavoidable circumstances can slow down the pace of our work for some time, but can’t stop us.

UPMRC engineers and contractors are working with great zeal to regain the time lost and the more and more labour force are returning to the construction site in Kanpur.
