Metro crane stalls

Quote:
A mechanical fault in a crane used at the Mumbai Metro construction site at Andheri (W) threw road traffic out of gear for several hours on Thursday. The traffic police had to step up bandobast and create temporary diversions for motorists.....The traffic police said the stalled crane blocked a lane on the S V Road-J P Road junction.

While other modes of transport in the city provide last mile connectivity, metro and monorail provide last mm connectivity,cm toh door ki baat hai. At ghatkopar and JB nagar station you dont even have to get down to the road below,just walk directly from ur.buildings common stairway to stations concourse area

DAMN! I didn't even notice the proximity. How the hell did they cast it? There's no way it could have been done without breaking the roof.

Those are pre-cast pier caps so the only casting is at the joints when attaching the pier caps to the pillars

you are right. If you observe the pic a bit more, you can see the colour difference in the roof tiles.

I haven't understood that second viaduct at Asalpha. I assume they're building a flyover there. But can anyone please explain where it leads to?

WHE station... do they have escalators or just normal steps only? As commuters will be put off if they have to climb for 3-4 levels isn't it?
