CONSTRUCTION WORK OF MOMINPUR -ESPLANADE STRETCH OF PURPLE LINE STARTED

Kolkata, Date: 20.04.2024

Construction work of the underground Mominpur -Esplanade stretch of Joka-Esplanade Metro Corridor (Purple Line) has got underway.In order to construct this stretch, Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) will be used to burrow the tunnels. For tunnelling the first stretch from Khidderpore to Victoria station, TBM will start working from inside the premises of St. Thomas School at Khidderpore.  For this, a launching shaft is required whose construction work at St. Thomas School is going on at present.Once this work is completed, TBM will start functioning to burrow the underground tunnels.  

Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL), the executing agency has already got the clearance certificate from West Bengal Forest Department to plant 145 new trees at Joka Metro Railway Depot in lieu of 28 trees at the site of Victoria station.RVNL has already planted these trees  at Joka Depot. At present, this agency is waiting for the NOC from the Forest Department for transplantation of these 28 trees. It is expected that this NOC will be obtained shortly.

For construction of Park Street station of this stretch, Calcutta Police Club, Calcutta Kennel Club and Rajasthan Club will be relocated temporarily outside the construction zone. For the normal operation of these clubs during the construction period, porta-type containers in the adjacent vacant land will be provided.  Five such containers have already been installed on the adjacent vacant land at Park Street. Rest of the containers will be installed shortly.

For the construction of Esplanade Metro station, Kolkata Mounted Police Paddock will be relocated temporarily to  Saheed Minar Maidan. No Objection Certificate from the Defence Authorities has already been obtained.  For the construction of proposed Esplanade station, Manohardas Tarag at Esplanade will be dewatered to pave the way for construction of tunnels below it with the help of Cut and Cover Method.  Once the construction is over, this famous waterbody of Kolkata will be reinstated. Public Works Department has already handed over this waterbody to RVNL for this project.
