RAILWAY Overview

   

The railways are the lifeline of progress. Historically, it was the railways that brought the far-flung peoples of India together. Today, the rail sector is poised to fulfill another significant role - answer the growing demands of a surging economy and a vibrant nation. The Indian Railways has achieved a historic turnaround, and is now making major investments for the future.Indigenous capability is the most viable long-term answer to India's needs.
 
In Larsen & Toubro, India's rail sector can find the partner that it needs. L&T has the requisite capability and the commitment. The Company's track record indicates its involvement in projects of national importance. L&T is, and has been a virtual private sector partner to the nation in providing the technology, engineering and construction capability in the areas of infrastructure development, hydrocarbon projects, space research, defence, steel, etc.
 
L&T's engineering & construction track record consists of successful implementation of turnkey projects in major core and infrastructure sectors of Indian industry. L&T has integrated strengths in process technology, basic and detailed engineering, equipment fabrication, procurement, project management, erection, construction and commissioning. This broad spectrum of capabilities enables L&T to offer single-point responsibility and successfully meet stringent quality standards and delivery schedules. L&T enters into strategic alliances with world leaders to expand its capabilities and remain on the cutting edge of change.
 
INTEGRATED RAILWAY PROJECTS
 
 
L&T has expertise in delivering integrated railway projects involving construction of formation, bridges, track, OHE, signaling, etc, in a comprehensive and cost effective manner. L&T represents a single source solution for varied requirements of complex and integrated railway projects. Panvel - JNPT doubling, railway siding and yard for Hirmi Cement plant, Tiruvallur-Arakkonam third line are a few recently executed projects. Similar project near Jharsuguda in Orissa for Sterlite Energy Limited (SEL) is under execution.
 
METRO RAIL SYSTEMS
 
 
L&T has contributed significantly to the successful implementation of Phase-I of Delhi Metro project by DMRC. As a consortium partner, L&T executed a major contract for construction of underground corridor from Kashmere Gate to Central Secretariat. This involved all types of underground construction methods, viz., cut & cover construction, NATM technique and tunnel boring technology. A novel technique was adopted for construction of Cut and Cover structure between Mandi House underground Station & ramp on extension of Barakhamba Road - Dwarka Metro corridor towards Pragati Maidan. L&T is also involved in construction of an underground corridor between Greenpark and Saket in Phase-2 of Delhi Metro Project.
 
MONO RAIL SYSTEMS
 
 
A consortium led by L&T with Scomi Engineering Bhd, Malaysia is executing the straddle type monorail system in Mumbai. This Rs. 24.6 billion (Rs. 2460 crore) project is the country's first Monorail System being set up for the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority.
 
This is a modern urban transport system where the cars move on a single beam in an elevated corridor. The design makes it possible to execute the project on a fast-track as it requires a small foot-print and facilitates implementation with minimal demolition of structures. Other advantages include greater reliability, high manoeuverability, lower cost and an eco-friendly design. These factors make Monorails an attractive option for Mumbai where land is a scarce resource. The monorail is a quiet system with sleek exteriors, and air-conditioned cars, adding to commuter comfort.

The project involves designing, constructing, installation, testing; commissioning and integrated testing including train trail with initial Operation & Maintenance from Gadge Maharaj Chowk (Jacob Circle) to Wadala (approx. 11 kms) and Wadala to Chembur via Mahul (approx 9 km) corridor on a Lump Sum Turnkey (LSTK) basis. The Monorail will have 18 stations enroute. The project is to be completed in a tight schedule of 30 months.
