According to reports, the MMRDA has finished installing all precast elements for the six stations on the first phase of the Metro-5 line from Thane to Bhiwandi in the Thane district.
This totals 1098 station components, such as spines, wings, U-girders, pier arms, and L-beams, among others, completing 73.35 percent of the corridor’s stations.
Additionally, work has been completed on 9.87 km of the 11.88 km (or 80.50%) viaduct elevated span that includes the six stations, said Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority Commissioner Dr. Sanjay Mukherjee.
The Metro Line 5 is an elevated 24.9 km route connecting Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan towns in the Thane district. It was constructed at a cost of Rs 8,416 crore, and its Phase I spans 11.88 km between Kapurbawadi in Thane and Dhamankarnaka in Bhiwandi.
The six stations along the route are Balkumnaka, Kasheli, Kalher, Purna, Anjurphata, and Dhamankar Naka. The 550-meter-long viaduct over the Kasheli Creek stretch and passing through rural Bhiwandi between Kasheli and Anjurphata are the two unique features.
Following the precast element work, Dr Mukherjee stated that concurrent work will be done on the flooring, fall ceiling, facades, roof, laying rails and system in order to finish it by the deadline.
