BHUBANESWAR (Metro Rail News): The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has initiated soil testing for the Bhubaneswar metro rail project in Odisha. The purpose of this investigation is to gather information about the physical properties of the soil to determine its suitability and strength for supporting the metro rail structure.

Soil sampling is underway by DMRC between Trisulia to Nandankanan. Additionally, samples will be collected between Nandankanan and the city airport. Once the soil testing is complete, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation will prepare a detailed project report based on the findings.

The Detailed project report will play a crucial role in deciding the routes, alignment, and other related aspects of the metro rail project. The announcement of the metro rail project was made by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Utkal Diwas. The first phase of the metro will cover a distance of approximately 30 km, connecting Trisulia in Cuttack to Biju Patnaik International Airport. It will also include connections to Jatni and Khurda, with a future extension planned to Puri.
