Kolkata : The underground construction work of Noapara-Barasat via Bimanbandar Metro Project has been going on in full swing amidst the lockdown maintaining social distancing and other COVID-19 protocols. The construction work of the diaphragm wall is currently in progress underneath Airport Entry Road at the proposed Bimanbandar Metro station site.
For this construction work on the junction of heavily congested VIP Road and Airport Entry Road crossing, all the necessary steps have been taken for ensuring smooth vehicular movement on these roads. Traffic Marshalls have been posted here 24×7 as well as blinkers are also being used during the night time.
