1.2 km Long 3 Metro Tunnels Completed

The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (MMRCL) said 1.2 km of tunnelling had been completed along various sections of the Metro 3 corridor. Eight tunnel boring machines (TBM) have been lowered at four sites: Azad Maidan, Naya Nagar near Mahim, Vidyanagri at Kalina and Marol Naka. The Naya Nagar site has made the most progress, tunnelling 492 metres so far. The first TBMs were lowered at the site in November last year. The TBMs will construct a 2.5-km tunnel up to Dadar Metro station. The Azad Maidan site, from where tunnels are being constructed to Grant Road, has completed 330m.
