Meanwhile, NCC and their subcontractors continue to carry out soil investigation work along the 6.107 km Malahi Pakri – New ISBT first section of Line-2 since work began in November. There’s no visual confirmation of the piling rig, which was deployed at Bhoothnath, actually starting boring works. At the most they might have bored a test pile, but that’s it.
