Patna Metro: First pier cap launched for elevated corridor

The first 70-tonne precast pier cap for the elevated Corridor-I section near the Mithapur metro station was successfully launched. This achievement marks a significant milestone in the construction of the city's metro infrastructure.

The 10.098-m-long pier cap was carefully placed at pier/pillar number 115 on the viaduct near the Mithapur metro station. The opening of this pier cap marks the start of the 17.93-km elevated Corridor-I.

There are 14 stations along Corridor-I, with both elevated and underground facilities. Elevated stations along this corridor include Danapur Cantonment, Saguna More, RPS More, Patliputra, Mithapur, Ramkrishna Nagar, and Jaganpura.

On the other hand, underground stations include Rukanpura, Raja Bazar, Patna Zoo, Vikas Bhawan, Vidyut Bhawan, and Patna Station. In addition, for commuters' comfort and improved connectivity, the corridor also has interchanges at Patna Station and Khemni Chak stations.

The pier cap is lifted onto the pier with the help of a crane after being precast in the casting yard. After this essential step, U-girders will be placed between two pier caps to serve as a framework for later installing metro lines.

The opening of the first pier cap is a testament to the team's expertise and commitment to the Patna Metro project. The authorities remain committed to completing the project and ensuring that the metro is operational as soon as possible, serving the needs of the public and completely transforming Patna's transportation system.
