Abstract
Carrying out civil works related to development of infrastructure towards Public Transport System is a challenging task in the present day urbanization condition. Such worksin City like Bangalore where there is acute shortage of space and Geology controls the progress of construction of metro rail corridor. Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL), takenresponsibility for implementing Bangalore Metro Rail Project and faced several difficulties in implementing First Phase of this project. One of such challenges was construction of Tunnels and Underground Stations.

Let us understand the challenges faced and solutions found for Tunneling and Station excavation.
