The National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) on Saturday said it has cast the first full height pier on the 508-km Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail (MAHSR) project, popularly known as the Bullet Train project.

NHSRCL Spokesperson Sushma Gaur said the NHSRCL took a significant step forward in its construction work by casting the first full height pier near Gujarat’s Vapi at Chainage 167 on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail Corridor which will run through 12 stations connecting Maharashtra, Dadar & Nagar Haveli and Gujarat.

“The average height of the pier on this corridor is nearly 12-15 metre and exact height of this pier is 13.05 metres, which is almost equivalent to a four-storey building,” she added. She said the pier was cast with 183 cubic metres of concrete quantity and 18.820 MT of steel.

The special shuttering arrangement in the lift is one of the major features of the corridor providing better quality in eight hours, Gaur added.

“This major construction milestone has been achieved despite severe shortage of manpower and other logistical challenges because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing monsoon season in the region. There are number of such piers planned to be cast in coming months paving way for the first high speed rail corridor,” she said.
