JC Shipping Pvt. Ltd, a subsidiary of Continental Logistics Solutions Pvt. Ltd, has cleared and transported the first Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) for the underground Metro 3 corridor, to the Mahim site of MMRC (CEC-ITD CEM-TPL-JV). The first TBM shaft will be built in Naya Nagar, Mahim and the boring work will start for the 6.08 km twin tunnel from Siddhivinayak to Dharavi. TBM is used as an alternative to the drilling and blasting method to construct tunnels with circular cross section.

 

The dimensions and weight of a few packages are 6,710 mm x 6,670 mm x 3,200 mm of 75 MT; 6,860 mm x 6,620 mm x 4,020 mm of 118 MT; 6,850 mm x 6,620 mm x 4,230 mm of 110 MT; 6,950 mm x 6,650 mm x 7,310 mm of 27 MT. These extraordinary and large packages were moved out by breaking the outer wall of Mumbai Port Trust. In this regard, special permissions were accorded by Mumbai Port Trust, Indian Customs and CISF.

 

Considering the huge risk and challenge involving road transportation through the busy Mumbai roads and looking at the safety and security of men and machine, special route permissions were obtained beforehand from the Commissioner of Police, Mumbai. The cargo was routed through Wadi Bunder, Dongri, JJ Junction, Reay Road, Barkat Ali, Ganesh Nagar, Wadala Terminal, Sion and Dharavi Bus Depot to the Mahim Church site. The entire operation was conducted by honouring all stipulated norms for the movement of such heavy cargo. Since the entire operation was conducted at night, special devices were installed in the vehicles to control noise pollution, and safety and other special precautions were maintained at the highest level. Minimum noise, peace and tranquility were maintained, highlighted a release.

 

Continental Logistics Solutions Pvt. Ltd has conveyed its special thanks to Mumbai Police, Customs officials and Mumbai Port Trust for their support.

 

The entire operation was conducted as per the advice and support of officials from CEC-ITD CEM-TPL-JV, MMRC and Mr K. Rajan, Vice-President of ITD Groups, the release added.
