KOLKATA (Metro Rail News): The Metro authorities are gearing up to install sound absorbents on the Salt Lake stretch of East-West Metro, which once operational, will run past schools, hospitals, and residential areas.

The installation of sound absorbents will reduce noise levels considerably and ensure quieter train movements. The East-West Metro, also called Line-2, will link Salt Lake Sector V at one end, to Howrah Maidan at the other end, covering a stretch of 16.6km.

Like the north-south Metro, the East-West corridor is also set to create history in Indian civil engineering as it includes the country’s first under-water Metro project running below the river Hooghly.
