The pumping station has gone several phases of development. Once the roof while being cast collapsed and a worker lost his life.

I myself had held several site visits and review to ensure that the commissioning date did not slip again.

I went today with Surinder Kumar IAS, CEO KMDA, Chunar De PD, Arun Chakraborty CE to inspect the progress of the walkway on the Hoogly Riverfront for which several elevated walkways have to be done. The work was virtually complete and I recalled the discussions in Floatel with its owner for allowing KMDA to construct the elevated walkway across it. Here is a photo on my mobile:
