Pace of work crawling at six rail over bridges along route for Metro.
Work on the remaining six rail over bridges has to be speeded up to put Metro Rail on the fast track, for the last 6 months and work on the rail over bridges has been slow due to traffic block charges and technical features, most contentious issue for the Railways is managing their traffic and blocking it for a few hours so that the overbridged work can be carried out as per the report.
Bharatnagar overbridge trains were blocked two days in a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays for three hrs. Blocking was carried out 14 times for one bridge, according to sources in Larsen and Toubro the company executing the project each bridge will require blocking trains 14 times and it requires a lot of meticulous planning by both the Railways and the engineering team of the company we cannot have the funds for to waste time. A lot of back-end planning has to be done.
And as the steel structures are going to run completely over the tracks and there will be no pillars in the middle the engineering has to be of a very high quality explained sources, these details regarding the six overbridges were discussed at a recent meeting between the railway authorities and senior officers of Hyderabad Metro Rail, according to HMR the principal chief engineer of South Central Railway Singh, assured full cooperation to complete the work.
As Said a senior L&T officer the work of erecting pillars on state government land outside the Railways has been completed. We now need to speed up the work to put the project on fast track and with managing director of Hyderabad Metro Rail, Reddy, proclaiming that the Nagole to Mettuguda and Miyapur to SR Nagar stretches of the Metro will start in 2017 year.
