Patel wins tunnel contract

Patel Engineering has won a contract from Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation Greater Mumbai (BMC) for the construction of a tunnel in Mumbai's suburbs

Patel Engineering has won a contract from Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation Greater Mumbai (BMC) for the construction of a tunnel in Mumbai's suburbs.

The project involves the construction of a 6.1km tunnel from Veravali to Yari Road.

A Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM), as opposed to drill-and-blast technology, will be used for construction.

BMC has previously used TBM technology for water supply and sewerage projects.

Further investments are expected to be made in Mumbai's urban infrastructure, including water supply and treatment systems, drainage systems and local transport infrastructure.
