In March this year, a joint venture (JV) of HCC and Megha Engineering & Infrastructures received an order from the National High-Speed Rail Corporation of India.

Under the contract, the JV agreed to construct the Bandra Kurla Complex station in Mumbai, India.

The bullet train station, which forms part of the 508.17km Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed rail project, will feature six 414m-long platforms, which can each accommodate a 16-coach bullet train.
