Mumbai Coastal Road Project: BMC completes 1-km long tunnel boring work with the help of 'Mavala'

Moving closer towards the completion of Mumbai's coastal road project, BMC has successfully drilled over a kilometre-long tunnel using 'Mavala', India's largest Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM). Imported from China, this machine has a 12.9 meter-wide diameter which has hastened the progress of the entire tunnelling work, significantly.

As per reports, BMC began the tunnelling scheme of the coast road project in January 2021, with the aim to carve out 2.07km twin tunnels, each about 70 meter-wide, in 18 months.
