Railway Permission

For the 100 mgd water supply project, railway permission to place 6ft diameter pipes under the circular railway lines near Debendra Bala Ghat in Bgbazar, Kolkata was required. We got the permission today after the issue was raised in a meeting by Hon'ble CM with Hon'ble Railway  Minister. Here is a copy sent to me by Debashis Banerjee, EE PHED through WhatsApp:

I along with a host of Engineers visited the intake jetty and was pleased to find much progress in the massive intake jetty. A pic:

The only job required to be done is a 240 m underground tunneling which will now start - now that the railway permission has been obtained. A deep underground pit has been dug and the hydraulic jack system will start pushing from Monday to connect to the last bit. A pic:

I expect that the trial run where the first water will reach New Town water treatment plant at Action Area 1 before the Pujas.
