Metro tunnel completed before time

The second metro tunnel at Hauz Khas was completed today at 11.30 a.m. The Delhi Metro has completed this project three weeks ahead of schedule. This construction of the tunnel had begun in February this year. The 1,453 metre long tunnel was completed just in four months. This tunnel is parallel to the first tunnel from Malviya Nagar to Hauz Khas, which was completed on May 31. The two tunnels will permit movement of Metro trains that will run on the Central Secretariat-Gurgaon section of Phase-II. The section would be opened to the public in 2010.
