Dextra’s Quarterly Newsletter: Connection #30

The capital city of Dhaka is the busiest city in Bangladesh and the one of the densest city in the world in terms of traffic. Dhaka MRT is the city’s first-ever metro system that will carry 60,000 passengers per hour.

MRT Line 6 consists of 16 elevated stations that are each 180 m long and 20.1 km of electricity-powered light rail tracks.

Dextra supplied three solutions to the project:

  • Bartec rebar splicing system for the reinforcement of the station structures.
  • Sonitec, a push-fit sonic tube for concrete integrity testing of foundation piles using CSL method.
  • Shear Key post tensioning bars used as permanent restrainer for the connection of elevated metro precast segments.

The first trial run of the Line 6 was carried out in August 2021, then the line will open by December 2022 as planned.

Groutec included in CITF Pre-Approved List

We are delighted to announce that Groutec rebar splicing systems for precast element connections is now included in the Pre-Approved List of the CITF (Construction Innovation and Technology Fund), Hong Kong as “Advanced Construction Material”.

The CITF is established to encourage wider adoption of innovative constructive methods and new technologies in the construction industry with a view to promoting productivity, uplifting built quality, improving site safety and enhancing environmental performance.

As precast technology is one of the techniques encouraged by CITF, eligible contractors will be able to benefit of a one-time reimbursement up to 70% of their purchase value (with a cap of HKD 1,500,000) when using Groutec in their project.
