Biznext India: Engineering major L&T has secured a larger order from the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (MMRCL) for design, procurement and supply, installation, testing and commissioning of ballastless track on the mainline from BKC station to Cuffe Parade (Package 10B – 43TKM) for Mumbai Metro Line 3 project (Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ). The company has secured this order against stiff competition from other major multi-national companies.
Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MMRC) is the nodal agency responsible for implementing the Mumbai Metro Line-3 (MML-3) project – a 33.5 Km long corridor between Colaba-BandraSEEPZ that will be funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). This will be L&T’s first project using Low Vibration Track technology like the one adopted for the line in the tunnel running under the English Channel connecting England a France. This system is easier to maintain as compared to the conventional vibration mitigation methods used in ballastless tracks. The scope of work includes design, supply of fastening systems for the entire Line-3, supply and installation of Low Vibration Ballastless tracks, testing and commissioning of ballastless tracks on the mainline from BKC station to Cuffe Parade station. The project has to be completed in 30 months.
