L&T Construction Wins Significant Contracts in Uttar Pradesh
Larsen & Toubro Ltd. on Wednesday said its construction arm has won significant contracts including regional rapid transit system order in Uttar Pradesh.
The construction arm of L&T has secured orders from prestigious clients for two of its businesses, the company said in a statement. A significant contract ranges between Rs 1,000-2,500 crore.
It said its Heavy Civil Infrastructure Business has secured another RRTS infrastructure order from the National Capital Region Transport Corporation in Uttar Pradesh to execute a new, dedicated, high speed, high capacity rail project in the Delhi – Ghaziabad – Meerut Corridor.
RRTS is different from a metro rail system as it caters to passengers looking to travel relatively longer distances with fewer stops and quicker. “The scope involves construction of a 11 kilometre viaduct including 5 elevated stations from Shatabdi Nagar to Brahmapuri and Begumpul to the Modipuram Depot, designed for speeds up to 180 kmph with the average operational speed of 100 kmph which is almost three times faster than that of metros,” the company said. Its Power Transmission & Distribution Business has won a slew of orders in the international market, the company said.
