Work on East-West Metro’s Bowbazar-Sealdah stretch resumed on Friday after nearly three months.

Engineers of Kolkata Metro Rail Corporation, the implementing agency of the project to connect Howrah Maidan with Sector V in Salt Lake, worked on the tunnel-boring machine, now under Nirmal Chunder Street in Bowbazar, so it can resume boring. “The machine will gradually pick momentum,” said a senior KMRC official.

Tunnel-boring work had stopped on March 25 following the nationwide lockdown.

Workers who had returned home were brought back after Unlock 1 and their health condition was checked before allowing them to join duty on Friday, East-West officials said.
