Infrastructure conglomerate Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has been awarded the contract for the redevelopment of the iconic New Delhi railway station. The project, which is expected to cost around Rs 7,000 crore, will transform the station into a world-class transportation hub.
L&T emerged as the winner of the contract after a competitive bidding process that saw several top companies vying for the project. The company has extensive experience in infrastructure development and is well-equipped to handle a project of this scale.
The redevelopment of the New Delhi railway station is part of a larger plan to modernize India’s railway infrastructure and improve passenger experience. The station, which was built in 1927, is one of the busiest in the country, with around 500 trains and 500,000 passengers passing through it every day.
The new station will feature state-of-the-art facilities, including a new terminal building, a multi-level car parking facility, and a new concourse area. It will also have improved connectivity with the surrounding areas, with a new Metro station and a bus terminal.
The project is expected to create several thousand new jobs and boost economic growth in the area. It will also be a major boost to tourism in the capital city, with the new station expected to become a major attraction for visitors.
The redevelopment of the New Delhi railway station is just one of many infrastructure projects that are currently underway in India. The government has announced plans to invest heavily in infrastructure over the next few years, with a focus on improving transportation, energy, and digital connectivity.
