People of Kolkata would soon get to commute in a one of its kind travel experience. Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal took to Twitter to announce about India's first underwater metro in Kolkata.
Goyal’s tweet read: “India’s first underwater train will soon start running under the Hooghly River in Kolkata. This train is an example of excellent engineering of India and an evidence of the progress of Indian railways.”
“This service will ensure comfortable transportation for Kolkata residents, and will also make the country proud,” he further added.

The project, which is about 16.6 km long, connects Howrah to the west and Salt Lake to the east. Out of the entire length, 10.8 km runs under the ground.
