L&T secures design and build order for high speed rail project in Mumbai


Larsen & Toubro’s (L&T) construction arm has won an order from National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) to design and build Package No. – MAHSR-C-5 of the Mumbai Ahmedabad High Speed Rail Project.

This project is considered the first high speed rail corridor being implemented in the country.

The work scope for the project consists of design and construction of Civil and Building works for a double line high speed railway with a length of 8.198km.

The scope also covers the major station of Vadodara, confirmation car base, viaduct and bridges, crossing bridges, architectural, and other associated works.

Slated to be completed within 49 months, the project alignment passes through Vadodara, Gujarat.

L&T is currently implementing two other packages - MAHSR – C-4 and MAHSR C-6 - of the high-speed corridor.

Last week, L&T’s construction subsidiary has secured a contract from Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for the first phase of Patna MRTS in India.

The company’s Heavy Civil Infrastructure Business has been awarded the contract to design and build an underground metro of the first phase.

It classified the order as ‘significant’, which means contract could be worth between INR10bn ($134m) and INR25bn ($335m).

Patna Metro Rail Corporation (PMRC) is providing funds for the project.

Under the contract, Heavy Civil Infrastructure Business will be responsible for the design and construction of about 6km-long twin tunnel by shield tunnel boring machine (TBM).

It also involves construction of an underground ramp at Rajendra Nagar and six underground metro stations including Rajendra Nagar, University, Gandhi Maidan, Moin Ul Haq Stadium, PMCH, and Akashvani.
