No D-wall, No problem!
Ahmedabad Metro (UG-1) Project team launches TBM
without Diaphragm Wall for the first time in India.
While the Metro continues to run on the surface and under the ground, it will soon run underwater, which will be a first for the country. India will witness its first-ever Metro rail to run underwater in Kolkata. This futuristic underwater Metro is one-of-its-kind and will be an Indian version of Eurostar’s London-Paris corridor. Witness the engineering marvel in Kolkata’s East West Metro executed by Afcons.
As the East West Metro project in Kolkata nears completion,
the whole country is eagerly waiting for the first-ever underwater
tunnels to open. Check some unique and amazing facts
