For the last 30 years, 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)
A notable tunnel project in India is the line which would connect Howrah and Sealdah Railway Stations, two of the busiest railway stations in the world and which would pass under Hooghly river, the first such river crossing in the country. 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.
