The HSR C2 Tunnelling package is a challenging project, as it will involve constructing an undersea tunnel as well as a tunnel through a highly urbanised area. The shaft excavations for the project could prove to be particularly challenging, as the depths could go beyond 50 metres.
Despite the challenges, Afcons is confident that it can complete the project on time and within budget. The company has a proven track record in tunnelling, having previously constructed the country's first underwater Metro tunnels in Kolkata.
Afcons owns all of the TBMs that it will be deploying for the HSR C2 Tunnelling package. This gives the company a significant advantage, as it will not have to rely on third-party contractors for the project.
The HSR C2 Tunnelling package is a major milestone for Afcons. The company is well-positioned to complete the project successfully, and its experience in tunnelling will be invaluable.
