Metro tunneling is up in full swing




Thousands of vehicles zip past Saidapet a day. Their riders probably cast a short look at the continued metro Rail work once stuck in a very holdup. however rarely will we get to visualize the scene underground.

The progress on this stretch has been rather slow as work was discontinued once the Russian firm Mosmetrostroy abandoned the project.

But soon, Afcons Infrastructure limited took over. Of the 2 tunnel boring machines (TBM) — that drill through the earth, build tunnels and connect stations — being employed to create a tunnel from Saidapet to Gemini, one has trained through 2.8 metric linear unit and reached Gemini. the opposite is probably going to finish work by month-end, officers say.

Meanwhile, the station at Saidapet is slowly taking form.

After years of construction, the work on platform level is in progress, say officers. it’s going to take a few more years, however after we do take a travel underground, it’s going to extremely be well worth the wait.
