I, along with enginneers of PHED, Hidco and Simplex visited the alignment from the intake point near Kashipur to BTRoad, Tallah Bridge, Kolkata Station, VIP Road and New Town. It is a challenging project - considering the congestion and traffic of Kolkata - but eminently do-able. Here is a photo:

Following up on our London visit, Mr Nigel Austin, MD, Arup India, met me at Hidco today. We discussed about the Iconic Tower Project at the Financial Hub. I explained that applications already made in response to EOI were being evaluated by an expert Committee and was expected to be finalised upon the return of the Chairman from abroad. I however, learnt a few things about architectural requirement of International Financial Companies.
Here is a picture with Mr Austin:
