Ayesa designs two of the most touristic stations in the Jaipur metro

The Jaipur metro is the Rajasthan rapid transport system (the state that borders with Pakistan). The city has 9.6 km of metro, operational since June 2015, corresponding to the first phase of the pink line.

The other 2.3 km belonging to the second phase began in January 2014, currently being built, with a civil works investment of approximately 12,260,000,000 Indian rupees (€151.4 million).

Ayesa has carried out the architecture and electromechanical installations, as well as supervising the engineering of the structure in the second phase, which includes the Chhoti Chaupar and Badi Chaupar stations. The latter is next to Hawa Mahal, one of the most important monuments in the city.

“This contract is very important for Ayesa as it involves the completion of the two most touristic stations in the city located in the heart of the Jaipur’s heritage zone”.

Both are on four levels: the base-platform slabs, the concourse, mezzanine-1 (only for services) and the roof.

During excavation, staggered wells were found (typical in Rajasthan), which were dismantled brick by brick, and will be rebuilt by a specialist organisation.

As highlighted by the India delegation, “Ayesa has managed to put together in the country a team that covers the three main disciplines of detailed design contracts for metro related projects (civil, architecture and E&M). We are capable of completing complex projects without the need of the support of other local companies, such as sub-contractors, allowing us to guarantee a high standard of work for our clients, exceeding those of the most important global competitors”.

Along with this, we could highlight the fact that “we are convinced that, thanks to the hard work that our business development team is carrying out, we will be able to land some of the most important projects in the near future in Delhi, Chennai or Pune, to name but a few”.

Investment plan

India, along with China as the country that is investing most in increasing its urban transport network. The government plans to build 660 km of underground metros in 15 new cities, which will add to the existing network, which already runs for 515 km.

Ayesa currently has contracts in eight cities within the country, which include Lucknow, Delhi, Noida and Mumbai.

The company arrived in the land of Ghandi in 2008 and just a decade later has become one of 

the three largest international engineering companies specialising in urban transport systems. It already has a workforce in excess of 300 staff.
