The Mumbai Metro project aims to serve Mumbai, Maharashtra, and the broader metropolitan region. Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRCL) delivered another section of The Mumbai Metro Line 3 on Oct. 16th.
A 653-m long drive from Churchgate to Hutatma Chowk station was completed to increase network connectivity and better access to Mumbai’s business centers in the city’s south area.
In order to build the proposed station, Robbins-made dual-mode hard rock TBM used two mixed tunneling construction methods, including the New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM) in addition to Cut-and-Cover. Surya-2 has finished this downline stretch in 275 days, installing 502 rings.
Mr. Ranjit Singh Deol, Managing Director of MMRC, stated: “The presence of iconic Flora Fountain and various heritage buildings made out the task a bit challenging.”
To date, the overall development of this project covers:
- 60% of civil work has been completed
- 88% of total boring has been accomplished
- Less than 50% of the Hutatma Chowk station construction remains
