News

KOLKATA: Work on the East-West Metro corridor in Bowbazar locality of Kolkata was partially affected due to sanitisation of the area after a few workers tested positive for COVID-19, a KMRCL official said here on Tuesday.

However, there has been no suspension of the tunnelling work being done in the area, the Kolkata Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (KMRCL) official said.

As per protocol, only those areas where the infected labourers were working are being sanitised and work in only those areas has been stalled, he said.

The official, however, did not share the exact number of infected workers, while saying "necessary health protocol is being followed".

KMRCL is the executing agency for the 16.6-km-long East-West Metro corridor project connecting Salt Lake Sector V with Howrah Maidan.
