Delhi Metro Girder Crashes Near Ghaziabad, 7 People Injured

Seven people injured in an accident at a Metro construction site near Ghaziabad


New Delhi:  Seven people have been injured after a girder at a construction site of Delhi Metro crashed in Mohan Nagar, in Ghaziabad on the outskirts of Delhi. A car and an auto-rickshaw were crushed after the girder fell on them.

"As per initial information, it appears that a steel girder which was erected for building the foot-over bridge at Mohan Nagar collapsed. Few injuries have been reported. However, we are verifying more details," a DMRC official said.

"The Chief Project Manager and General Manager of DMRC have reached the site to take stock of the situation," he added. The bridge was being built for the Dilshad Garden-New Bus Adda section of the network.

The stretch of metro extension, which is over 9 km, is will have eight stations in Ghaziabad - Shaheed Nagar, Raj Bagh, Rajendra Nagar, Shyam Park, Mohan Nagar, Arthala, Hindon and the New Bus stand.

Earlier this year, the Delhi Metro made it to the Limca Book of Records for erecting 200 girders in one of its lines within a month, on the Noida - Greater Noida corridor.

"This is the maximum number of U-girders ever launched in any Metro corridor in India within a month. DMRC used six special trailers to transport the girders and six special cranes," a DMRC statement said.
