OUR UNDERGROUND EXPERTISE
Our specialists understand the vital role of tunnelling in transportation projects.
We are bringing expertise throughout the asset life cycle from pre-feasibility, through risk engineering and ventilation systems to post-maintenance and asset management.
In the past decade, we consolidated our craft in India by undertaking prestigious underground projects in Delhi, Lucknow, Chennai, Kolkata, etc. Today, we continue to be involved in the development of the most prestigious Underground projects including:
- Light rapid transit (LRT)
- Designed 32 Km of twin bored tunnels across the country and 75 nos of underground stations in various metro projects across India
A notable tunnel project in India, is the line which connects Howrah and Sealdah Railway Stations, two of the busiest railway stations in India and which pass under Hooghly river. The challenge is that the tunnel passes beneath the bed of Hoogly river where soil property is very sensitive. The underground section of the project starts from Howrah Maidan to new Mahakaran.
