boring machine will be launched only after the first one drills about 100 metres. There will be two tunnel boring machines allotted for Shenoy Nagar out of the 11 tunnel boring machines placed at different locations of the work site, he said. The work on assembling the tunnel boring machine started about a month back in Shenoy Nagar and will be ready soon, he
added. This is the fourth Metro station, after Nehru Park, Washermenpet and May Day Park were tunnelling work is in progress. It will take a couple of months to excavate 100 metres once the TBM is launched,” the official said.
The first TBM will drill across Shenoy Nagar, Anna Nagar East, Anna Nagar Tower and reach Thirumangalam covering a distance of 3.5 km. Construction of the base slab for the station is nearing completion and work on the second roof slab is in progress.
