      I’m lost. What’s your point? Regular followers / readers are well aware of the civil work’s status. I’ve listed it out as well.

        Are yar
        Tunnel ka kam kha hua start.
        Usko complete karne me bhi lagange 5 years

        • TMRG says:

          So kya tabtak tendering process doosre packages ke liye pause karde? If anything, that will only drive up cost.

          This is probably the first time we’ve got a project where civil & system tendering is happening almost simultaneously due to the availability of funds.
