Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has readied the design to reconstruct an expansion-joint-less, four-lane flyover at Palarivattom on the lines of the one at Edappally to replace the one whose cracked girders will be pulled down, Metroman E. Sreedharan has said.
While 100 of the 102 girders and the deck above will be pulled down, the piers and pier caps will be wrapped using reinforced concrete. The method is stronger and durable than carbon-fibre-wrapping that had been suggested earlier, he added.
