Delhi - Chennai
To reduce the goods transportation cost and time, DFCCIL has introduced 3300 km dedicated heavy load goods track for avoiding the congestion of existing passenger tracks which also facilitates options of new passenger trains in the surplus time of existing routes.
The proposed heavy load capacity BG line will help faster movement of goods between North-South India and thus reducing goods carrying time and cost.
As a part of this 3300 km project we were entitled to undergo geotechnical investigation of 50 km stretch where we found the best route for tunnel and have completed geotechnical investigations to find tunnel profile and as an input of tunnel design.
