Joint Venture Won a $446.5m Mumbai High-Speed Rail Station Deal

Mumbai High-Speed Rail

A JV of two Indian construction firms has won a deal to construct a station for a high-speed rail line in Mumbai.

Megha Engineering & Infrastructures and Hindustan Construction Company (HCC) will construct the station for the National High-Speed Rail Corporation in a contract valued at US$446.5 million (Rs 3,681 crore).

The Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) bullet train station will function as a terminal for the 508.2 km-long Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed line.

The station will have six 414m-long platforms, each adequate to house a 16-coach bullet train.

In addition, it will link with the metro and road transport and will be the only underground station on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail corridor.

The JV will construct the three-floor station nearly 24m beneath the ground, over a total floor area of 2 million sq m.

The station will include waiting areas, a business-class lounge, a nursery, restrooms, smoking rooms, and information kiosks.

Moreover, the contract contains a retrieval shaft construction on the eastern end for removing the TBM (tunnel boring machine), all MEP works, architectural finishing, and testing and commissioning.

HCC, the Infrastructure specialist, argues to have constructed 26% of India’s hydropower generation and 60% of its nuclear generation capacities, plus more than 4,036 lane km of roads and 395 Bridges.
