Geotechnical Investigation for PETS survey in East - West corridor of DFC for Tunnels.
Rites Ltd., Delhi
Kolkata - Mumbai
To reduce the goods transportation cost and time, DFCCIL has introduced a 3300 km dedicated heavy load goods track for avoiding the congestion of existing passenger tracks which also opens up the opportunity to introduce new trains in the surplus time of existing routes.
The proposed heavy load capacity BG line will help faster movement of goods between East-West India and thus reducing goods carrying time and cost.
As a part of this 3300 km project we have been entitled to undergo geotechnical investigation of a 50 km stretch where we found the best route for tunnel and have completed geotechnical investigations to find tunnel profile and as an input to tunnel design.
