PATNA (Metro Rail News): On Tuesday, the state cabinet granted its approval to the updated cost estimate of Rs 542 crore for the construction of a world-class heritage tunnel or subway. This tunnel will link Bihar Museum with Patna Museum.

The tunnel, a technological marvel, is designed to be 1.5 kilometers long with a diameter of eight meters. It will be situated 15 to 20 meters underground and is the first of its kind in the country, according to S Siddharth, the additional chief secretary of the state cabinet secretariat department.

The tunnel will have entry and exit buildings with a G+1 structure and three-level basements. These buildings will house facilities like goods lifts, security checks, and toilets. Inside the tunnel, there will be an art gallery that showcases Bihar’s art forms, culture, heritage (including Madhubani painting), murals, and other artifacts.

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation is overseeing the construction of this tunnel, which will incorporate safety measures for emergencies. It will also facilitate combined ticketing and a seamless transition from the metro system. The tunnel will pass at a depth of 29 meters at the crossing point of the Patna metro rail tunnel.
