MahaMetro Nagpur has set unique benchmarks in the city by creating engineering marvels. The engineering marvels are the result of out of the box thinking and unique & innovative approach during execution of the Metro project.
One such marvel is 231 M Long Bridge Across Indian Railway Track near Anand Talkies, Sitabuldi.
Work on Cantilever has started with construction of pillars. The Balanced Cantilever Bridge is 3 span continuous bridge with configuration of 62.2m + 97m + 72m. The middle portion of 103m span is located across the railway track.
It is one of the largest bridge by Balanced Cantilever method across the railway lines in India.
Construction of Balanced Cantilever Bridge is a challenging task as the location where bridge is to be erected has class “A” traffic (high density). Similarly, very high safety standards are to be maintained as construction is to be done over running railway traffic.
Also height of Piers is as high as 16 meters due to geographical profile is also a challenge in itself. ‘ITD Cementation’ company is executing this project.
