Railway Track Work in DFCC Project by M/s MCCMAHADEO CONSTRUCTIONS PVT. LTD.

The development of a robust and extensive railway network is pivotal for a nation’s economic growth and infrastructural advancement. In India, the Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India (DFCC) project stands as a testament to this vision, aimed at enhancing freight transportation efficiency across the country. One of the significant contributors to this monumental project is the M/s MCCMAHADEO CONSTRUCTIONS PVT. LTD. , which is undertaking railway track work in collaboration with IL&FS Engineering Services in the Dehri On-Sone – Mughalsarai Section-1, spanning across Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.

Overview of the DFCC Project

The DFCC project is a massive infrastructural initiative by the Indian government, designed to augment the capacity, speed, and efficiency of freight transport across the country. The project involves the construction of two main corridors: the Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor (EDFC) and the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor (WDFC). The EDFC runs from Ludhiana in Punjab to Dankuni in West Bengal, passing through various states including Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. The Dehri On-Sone – Mughalsarai section, where MCC is actively working, is a crucial part of the EDFC.


M/s MCCMAHADEO CONSTRUCTIONS PVT. LTD.  has established itself as a prominent player in the construction and infrastructure sector. With a proven track record of delivering high-quality projects on time and within budget, MCC has earned a reputation for excellence and reliability. The company’s involvement in the DFCC project underscores its commitment to contributing to India’s infrastructural development.

Scope of Work in the Dehri On-Sone – Mughalsarai Section

The Dehri On-Sone – Mughalsarai section covers a significant stretch of the EDFC, extending across the states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. This section is critical as it connects major industrial and commercial hubs, facilitating the efficient movement of goods. The scope of work for MCC in this section includes:

  1. Railway Track Laying: MCC is responsible for laying new railway tracks, ensuring they meet the highest standards of quality and safety. This involves precise alignment and leveling to ensure smooth and efficient train operations.

  2. Earthwork and Subgrade Preparation: Before the tracks are laid, extensive earthwork is carried out to prepare the subgrade. This involves excavation, grading, and compaction to create a stable foundation for the tracks.

  3. Ballasting and Track Formation: Ballast is an essential component of the track structure, providing stability and drainage. MCC oversees the procurement, transportation, and placement of ballast, followed by track formation and alignment.

  4. Construction of Bridges and Culverts: The section includes several bridges and culverts to ensure seamless connectivity and water drainage. MCC is involved in the construction and maintenance of these structures, ensuring they are robust and durable.

  5. Signaling and Telecommunication: Modern signaling and telecommunication systems are integral to efficient railway operations. MCC collaborates with IL&FS Engineering Services to install and commission these systems, enhancing safety and communication along the corridor.

  6. Electrification: As part of the broader goal to electrify the DFCC, MCC is involved in the installation of overhead electrification (OHE) equipment. This includes erecting poles, stringing wires, and commissioning substations.

Challenges and Solutions

Undertaking railway track work in a project of this scale comes with its own set of challenges. MCC has demonstrated remarkable resilience and innovation in addressing these challenges:

  1. Geographical and Climatic Challenges: The terrain and weather conditions in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh can be challenging. MCC employs advanced surveying and construction techniques to mitigate the impact of these factors, ensuring continuous progress.

  2. Coordination and Logistics: Coordinating with multiple stakeholders and managing logistics for materials and equipment is complex. MCC leverages robust project management tools and practices to streamline coordination and logistics, minimizing delays.

  3. Safety and Quality Control: Ensuring the safety of workers and maintaining quality standards are paramount. MCC implements stringent safety protocols and quality control measures, conducting regular inspections and audits to uphold high standards.

Impact and Benefits

The successful completion of the Dehri On-Sone – Mughalsarai section will have far-reaching impacts:

  1. Economic Growth: Enhanced freight transportation will spur economic growth in the region by reducing transportation costs and time, thus boosting trade and commerce.

  2. Job Creation: The project has generated numerous employment opportunities, contributing to the local economy and providing livelihoods to many families.

  3. Environmental Benefits: Electrification and the use of modern technologies will reduce the carbon footprint of freight transportation, promoting sustainable development.

  4. Improved Connectivity: The new infrastructure will improve connectivity between key industrial zones, facilitating smoother and faster movement of goods.
