Maha-Metro (Maharastra Rail Corporation) is all set to take recourse to the tunneling technology to steer clear of the inevitable construction mess. The five km underground route will not only play down the inexorable trouble on road, but is also expected to wrap up the metro making yet faster. While the most hyped 11,420 crore metro project in Pune is expected to be completed by 2021, its also anticipated to bring in the much-required poise in the city.
The tunnel is decided to be drilled around 30m under the Mula Mutha Riverbed and the main section of the project will pass through it. As stated in the conference ‘Year in Infrastructure 2017’, the tunneling technology will actually turn out as a relief for the engineers as well as the daily commuters on road. The Deccan Plateau basalt Satara will bear 5 km underground stretch which will alleviate the construction clutter to a significant extent. The hard ground of the plateau has got good drilling stretch and is expected to fetch a perfect set of scales in transportation.
The tunneling technology used in Pune Metro is mainly inspired from Nagpur Metro which has just been an instance before the entire country after it had reduced the construction cost and time to huge degree.
The tunnel-board is apprehended to make a big difference in the construction work and bring in yet more perfection in the Pune metro project.
