BANGALORE: Secon Private Limited, a Bangalore based company involved in drilling work, has begun soil testing in various places along the route of the multi-crore Metro Rail project.

Sources at the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited said that the company had begun to test the soil from Anil Kumble Circle up to Ring Road Junction on Mysore Road and from Yeshwantpur to R V Road in the first phase of the project.

The soil will be tested at every 50 metres in sections where the rail corridors will go underground and at every 100 metres where the rail tracks will be elevated.

The report of the soil test is expected to be submitted by March 2007.
