TBM Makes Successful Breakthrough at Chennai’s AG-DMS/Gemini Station

Yesterday it was Bangalore’s big day (See: [Pics] TBM Krishna Finally Makes a Breakthrough at Chickpet) and today it is Chennai’s! TBM 2 made a successful breakthrough at the AG-DMS (Gemini) station while tunneling from Teynampet. It’s important to note that the contractor for this stretch, Gammon-Mosmetrostroy, had originally abandoned the project, so Afcons had to be roped in to complete tunneling.
