Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd. today invited bids for the civil construction of Kolkata Metro Line-6’s Package ANVS – a 3.519 km mostly elevated extension from Sub CBD-2 Station to Kolkata Airport (Biman Bandar).
This section of the 32 km Line-6 (Kavi Subhash New Garia – Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport) was originally envisioned to be underground, but large-scale land acquisition for its ramp and station at Teghoria (named Rabindra Tirtha) forced RVNL to convert a large potion of it – barring an approximate 950m airport stretch – into an elevated line.
