Ramboll appointed to conduct a quality audit and feasibility study for the Gurugram Rapid metro project
The city of Gurugram (Haryana, India) has grown significantly in the last few years leading to a major rise its population and the number of vehicles on the roads. Subsequently, traffic congestion and pollution have soared making it challenging for commuters.
With this in mind, Haryana Urban Development Authority developed a metro rail system known as the Rapid Metro. As the name suggests, Rapid Metro provides a faster link from the NH-8 via various hubs in Cyber City and the golf course road to the Sikanderpur Delhi Metro station, thereby reducing the commuting time substantially.
Ramboll had the opportunity to work on this prestigious project in two phases. The first phase included the quality audit for civil structures for the viaduct, depot, station buildings and track structures for the Rapid Metrorail Gurgaon South Limited (RMGSL) rail system.
The second phase included the delivery of the feasibility study for the preliminary alignment fixation study and block cost estimate for the northern extension of RMGSL.
Ramboll’s experts carried out a review of the existing quality protocol in different civil structure, track and finishing contracts keeping in view the requirements of relevant codes, specification for Phase 1 in line with RDSO stipulations for such projects.
In addition, in Phase 2 our experts conducted a topographical survey and alignment generation, suggesting the station locations with box drawings including entry/exist, identification of special spans, blocking cost for the project, highlighting constraints with suitable photographs.
