L&T Construction bags two contracts to build RRTS Infrastructure

Mumbai: The Heavy Civil Infrastructure Business of L&T Construction has secured two contracts to build Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) Infrastructure from National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) in Uttar Pradesh.

The scope of the project is to execute a new, dedicated, high speed, high capacity rail system in the Delhi – Gaziabad – Meerut Corridor. RRTS is distinct from metro transit systems as it caters to passengers traveling relatively longer distances with fewer stops and at higher speed. The design speed for the project is 180 KMPH with an average operational speed of 100 KMPH.

Commenting on this path-breaking order, Mr. S V Desai, Senior Vice President & Head – Heavy Civil Infrastructure IC, L&T Construction said: “We are delighted to have been entrusted with responsibility to develop this unique project, a first-of-its-kind for India which is a reaffirmation of our proven capability to build faster and reliable mass transit systems that are in sync with our strategic goal of aiding rapid transportation infrastructure Development.”

The two contracts for RRTS have been secured for packages starting from Duhai to Modi Nagar and from Modi Nagar to Shatabdi Nagar for a total distance of approximately 32 Km viaduct including 7 elevated stations. These contracts have been bagged against stiff competition and are breakthrough projects with this customer.
