The tunnel is built under the Hooghly River
This water tunnel is built under the Hooghly River. Two tracks are laid in this 520-meter-long tunnel, which is 33 meters below the ground and 13 meters below the surface of the Hooghly River. This tunnel will not only save time for the residents of Kolkata but also provide them with a comfortable journey. This gift of the metro to Kolkata will directly benefit millions of people.

What’s special about the underwater metro
The special thing is that this metro will cover the entire 520 meters under the Hooghly River. It should be noted that 10.8 kilometers out of the total 16.6 kilometers of the East-West Metro is underground. The work of this metro has been going on for 13 years, but after 2015, it gained momentum, and it took only 66 days to build this tunnel.
