The Heavy Civil Infrastructure Business of L&T Construction has bagged two contracts to build Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) Infrastructure from National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) in Uttar Pradesh.
The estimated size of deal size is in the range of Rs 1,000- 2,500 crore (US$ 143.08-357.70 million).
Under this project, company will execute a new, dedicated, high speed, high capacity rail system in the Delhi – Ghaziabad – Meerut Corridor.
