In a remarkable feat of engineering, Surat High-Speed Rail (HSR) Station has achieved a significant milestone by successfully completing the construction of both the concourse and rail level slabs within a period of just one year. This achievement marks the station's position as a trailblazer on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail (MAHSR) Corridor.
"The Surat HSR Station, which stands as a testament to modern infrastructure prowess, boasts a 450-meter-long concourse level and an equal-length rail level. The station's dimensions span an impressive 37.4 meters in width, encompassing a total of 9 slabs" said an official.
"The casting of the first slab took place on August 22, 2022, setting the pace for an exceptional construction journey. The project concluded on August 21, 2023, with the successful casting of the final slab. This rapid one-year timeline for completing both the concourse and rail level slabs underscores the dedication and efficiency of the construction teams involved" he said.
According to NHSRCL , the sheer scale of the accomplishment becomes evident when examining the materials utilized. A staggering quantity of 13,672 cubic meters of concrete was poured, reinforcing the station's robust structure. The use of 2785.43 metric tons of steel further highlights the commitment to creating a durable and secure transportation hub.
