I am thinking they will go under Lenin Sarani after Esplanade?

I am thinking there will be even more problems in that stretch as it cuts across congested areas of the city and there are no "broad" roads.
Yes indeed. But there's no other alternative. If the illegal encroachments can be removed, it can still brace the challenge and this area can be broadened and spruced up later.

The route will be totally underground with no stations in between, so what problems will be there I am unable to understand. If any dangerous buildings are there they will be taken care of as they have been at brabourne road by strengthening the buildings. Land has already been acquired for the ventilation shaft. Anyway it will initially go through s n B annerjee road from esplanade.

That is exactly what I mean "previously." From July the pace of work suddenly increased. The Ruby station is half finished now I believe! Not a civil engineer though so I cannot be sure, haha.

New Garia Station for line 6 in under construction .... Yesterday My father went to New Garia for his work , due to my request he clicked these pics and gave me some info .... According to him some 7 or 8 workers were working there at that time .. He asked local people about the speed , they told him that speed of construction of station work was well but now rain retarded the speed....

Here some images

No, no- its not about the post construction, the concern about the congestion that will be created during the construction period.

Doesn't look like Thakurpukur area. I think it's Joka station.

From this pic itself its obvious they cannot start in 2018. It would require a huge workforce and machinery working 24x7 to complete it in 2018. Then civil work wil start followed by trials.

Yes ... Still station's civil structure may take max 4 months after monsoon .... So expectation of Dec 2018 is there if all civil structure they complete by Mar 2018 .... Now Metro Railways Kolkata / Indian Railways is going huge loss due to delay construction in Calcutta... So I don't think on wards they will do delay on current constructions mainly those projects are almost over ..if no new hurdle come..May be their speed can't compete to other city's constructions ,as there are private bodies(e.g. Reliance) holding projects and in Kolkata central Govt. But comparing to Kolkata's speed of project speed will be more .... As now Metro Railways, Kolkata has to make profit ... So Line 6 , Line 1 (extn) are highly prioritized after line 2 ... Even also Line 3's 1st phase (But I don't know about Depot)....

What about line 4?

No, it's not Joka. Joka station is almost complete first of all, secondly, Joka station is at Diamond park. This isnt diamond park, DP is much more congested and you can see the big water tank in DP.l and ofcourse the ESIC Towers. This can be Thakurpukur.

If this the progress till now, it is IMPOSSSIBLE to start services by 2018. This is still at a very early stage. I don't know how they are going to complete this. This looks very sad.

Really, it's a sad state of affairs. If the pace continues to be like this, even 2019 will also look like a distant dream for Ruby-New Garia stretch.

Also from the pics, doesn't it seem that station work on East metro work is lagging behind the state they were supposed to be, at this point of time? there are lots of small finishing work at the stations, which normally take time. are they really working fast?

The traffic above will be unaffected. It will bore underground at considerable depth. People above wouldn't know.
