NCC Ltd. This week began pouring concrete to cast the first 9.5m wide pier cap for Patna Metro’s 6.107 km Malahi Pakri – New ISBT (PC01) section of the 14.05 km Line-2 connecting Patna Junction Railway Station – New ISBT.

Construction work on the 30.91 km Patna Metro Phase 1 project – India’s 21st system to enter the construction stage – started with piling works in December 2020. Rebar for piers started appearing at multiple sites in April 2021.
