Dilapidated buildings around proposed underground tunnel of Kanpur Metro to be repaired

Out of the 12 planned stations on the Chunniganj Naubasta Line, seven will be underground facilities.

After the Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation's officials deployed consistent interventions to establish elevated stations of Kanpur Metro, efforts for the underground stretch are gradually gearing up. As per the latest reports, the authorities will execute steps for the repair and restoration of dilapidated buildings around the proposed underground metro tunnel from Chunniganj to Nayaganj. Reportedly, a survey was conducted for this purpose on Monday and the work shall be started soon.

7 out of 12 stations on the Chunniganj-Naubasta line to be underground

As per reports, the repair activities will be implemented in the vicinity of 50 metres from the planned underground line. Firstly, their current condition will be gauged and based on that, restoration work will be executed. It is important to make sure that all such buildings are in a good state because the tunnel drilling work may damage them. This can only be done after inspecting the strength and tolerance of the buildings.

As per reports, the second phase of the metro includes the construction of 12 stations between Chunniganj and Naubausta. While 7 out of these will be underground facilities, others will be established on-ground.

UPMRC to monitor buildings close to the underground tunnel

As per reports, the Public Relations Officer of UPMRC informed that officials will regularly monitor the buildings close to the underground tunnel after the boring machine starts its work. This will make sure that the disturbances do not lead to detrimental effects on the neighbouring structures.

Additionally, the officials are also identifying areas where privately owned borewells are dug. Depending on the requirements, the borewells will be shifted to some different locations. It is noteworthy that both, the restoration and relocation interventions will need the authorised permission of the owners. Further, reports state that UPMRC will bear all the expenses incurred during this project.
