Kolkata Metro Update: Construction of Victoria Metro Station Begins in Full Throttle

KOLKATA (Metro Rail News): A major development unfolding in the Kolkata Metro Purple Line expansion project is the commencement of the Victoria metro station, which would basically be an underground metro station. It will be constructed using the cut-and-cover method, and M/s Larsen & Turbo Ltd. will be involved in its development. 

“The contract for the entire underground section has been given. The barricades on the Maidan are meant to block unauthorised access to the construction site. More such portions of the Maidan will be barricaded in the coming days,” said an official of the RVNL. 

The proposed corridor has a combination of both underground & elevated routes. The Joka-Momnipore section of the project is elevated, and the rest after Momnipore is underground. The four underground stations will be Kidderpore, Victoria, Park Street & Esplanade. The length of the underground section is about 5 Km. 

Operational since January, the Joka-Taratala section doesn’t see much footfall. It functions on a system where one train completes one leg of the journey and then comes back. Five clubs & one riding school in the periphery of the ground have been asked to vacate in order to channelize the construction work. 


“Intrigued by the future of Metro and its impact on our city? Join us at our upcoming event Inno Metro to delve deeper into this vital issue. Stay informed, get involved, and let’s ride the Metro towards a brighter, more sustainable future together.”
