The heavy civil infrastructure business of Larsen & Toubro (L&T) Construction has secured two contracts to build Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) Infrastructure from the 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 travelling relatively longer distances with fewer stops and at higher speed.
The design speed for the project is 180 km per hour with an average operational speed of 100 km per hour. 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 seven elevated stations. The value of the contracts is between Rs 1,000 crore and Rs 2,500 crore.
