The Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) has completed more than half of the piling work of the 9 kilometres long Priority Corridor of the Kanpur Metro project. The priority corridor is being constructed between IIT-Kanpur to Motijheel. Today workers of Afcons Infrastructure have completed around 1,300 piles between IIT Kanpur and Gurudev Metro station on 30th July 2020.
Piling means preparing the foundation by digging into the ground and putting reinforcement under the carved pile. A total of 2330 piles is to be prepared between IITs to Motijheel, out of which around 1300 piles have been prepared so far, i.e. about 55% of the work has been completed. Piling work from IIT to Gurudev Metro station under the utility has been almost completed, as the construction of only 8 piles in this part of the corridor is left. For this, an electric shutdown is needed near SPM Hospital.

Civil construction of the Kanpur Metro’s Priority Corridor was commenced on 15th November 2019. UP Metro had set a target to complete 1277 piles by the end of July. The UPMRC has so far surpassed this target and has prepared around 1300 piles. Besides this, 95 Piers and 122 Pile Caps have also been constructed in the corridor so far.
Construction/casting activities at the Casting Yard are also progressing with a nice momentum and so far 44 Pier Caps, 78 U-girders and 57 Double T-girders have been cast. Of these, 28 Pier Caps and 4 double T-girders have been erected till now. Recently, a pre-cast double T-girder was launched at IIT Kanpur Metro station.
Piling is the process of preparing the foundation by digging inside the ground. This is the earliest phase of the civil construction of the Metro structure. Reinforcement (iron net) is put into the ground by digging it and then concreting is done. The land needs to be strengthened to cope with the structural weight of the Metro system and for the same, piling is required.
