24x7 Geotechnical Monitoring deployed for Mumbai-Ahmedabad Bullet Train Project

Mumbai, India (Metro Rail Today): In a bid to ensure the safety and integrity of civil structures and service utilities associated with the under-construction Mumbai-Ahmedabad Bullet Train project in Maharashtra, highly sensitive Geotechnical Monitoring Instruments are being deployed around the clock.

These instruments, including Inclinometers, Vibration monitors, Ground settlement markers, and Tilt meters, have been strategically installed at and around construction sites to monitor various parameters such as tilt, settlement, vibration, cracks, and deformation. Their role is crucial in identifying potential risks to ongoing underground works, such as excavation and tunneling, as well as to the surrounding structures.

The Geotechnical Instruments are linked to their respective modules, facilitating the continuous recording and monitoring of activities. This real-time data enables prompt identification of any emerging risks, allowing for timely interventions to mitigate them effectively.

Furthermore, measures are being taken to address environmental concerns associated with construction activities. Dust and noise monitors are being installed to ensure that noise and air pollution levels remain within permissible limits both on-site and in the surrounding areas.

The ongoing construction activities for the 21-kilometer underground portion of the Bullet Train corridor in the Mumbai and Thane districts of Maharashtra are progressing steadily. These works encompass excavation for a 1-kilometer-long underground Bullet Train station at Bandra Kurla Complex, as well as the construction of shafts and portals for tunneling operations.

To facilitate the tunneling process, three mega Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) will be deployed, with a significant portion of the tunnel passing beneath the sea. The depth of the tunnel will vary, reaching depths of up to 57 meters. Additionally, the construction of three shafts, one ADIT, and a portal is underway to accommodate the deployment and operation of the TBMs.

The construction of such underground megastructures necessitates the utmost attention to safety, ensuring the protection of construction sites and surrounding structures above and below ground while minimizing inconvenience or disruption to nearby residents.

The implementation of 24x7 Geotechnical Monitoring for the Bullet Train project underscores a commitment to safety and precision in construction practices. By leveraging advanced monitoring technologies and adhering to stringent environmental standards, authorities aim to ensure the successful completion of the project while mitigating potential risks and minimizing impact on surrounding communities.
