ABSTRACT     

 Metro Rail is a mass rapid transportation system and also environment friendly. It is also a modern technology for transportation. To overcome the future demand and to make a short and less time consuming transportation system, Bangladesh Government has taken this project. It is a fast and time saving transportation system which is really needed for Dhaka. This study covers to find out geotechnical investigation and to compare the pile bearing  capacity  load  between  NKDM  Corporation  and  manual  calculation.  Where NKDM Corporation got design load 3600 kN for a pilot pile and we got design load 4000 kN. In this report we are also trying to show various geotechnical testing methods and reports,  i.e.  soil  report  (SPT  test  result),  static  compression  load  test,  sonic  borehole measurement test, sonic cross hole logging test and large pile construction.
