Consultant for Hooghly River tunnel project in Kolkata Port gets hired

Rodic Consultant has been hired by Kolkata Port, also known as Syama Prasad Mookherjee Port, to conduct a techno-feasibility study for a tunnel beneath the Hooghly River connecting the towns of Kolkata and Howrah.

If the proposed tunnel is built, it will be the second of its sort in the nation, following the tunnel built by the East West Metro Railway.

The proposed tunnel will allow the cargo-laden trucks of the port to leave the Khidirpur dock area quickly and without obstruction, as well as relieve traffic on the city's highways.

The study, which could require an investment of Rs 20 billion, is anticipated in 7-8 months.
