HYDERABAD (Metro Rail News): L&T (Larsen and Toubro) has been declared the lowest bidder for the civil construction and system procurement contract of the 31-km Hyderabad Airport Metro project. The project aims to connect Mindspace Junction to Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) at Shamshabad, reducing travel time significantly.

In May 2023, the Hyderabad Airport Metro Limited (HAML) had invited bids for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract. After much interest from national and global firms, only L&T and NCC submitted their bids. L&T’s bid stood out, securing them the contract.

The project, funded by the state government, involves designing and constructing various aspects, including viaducts, underground structures, stations, tracks, electrical and mechanical works, rolling stock, power supply, and more.

The 31-km metro corridor will include an elevated section of 29.3 km and an underground part of 1.7 km. With nine stations planned, including an underground one by the airport terminal, provisions for four additional stations are also considered.

The financial bids were assessed jointly by SYSTRA – RITES – DB Engineering JV, the General Consultant, and HAML’s officials. The recommendation for the contract award will be made to the Telangana state government for L&T’s bid. A groundbreaking ceremony is slated for September 11.
