Indian contractor Larsen and Toubro has awarded consultant Mott Macdonald a design contract for six stations on the Indian Hyderabad metro development.
The consultant will provide architechtural, structural and public health design services for six stations, three of which are interchange stations.
“Mass rapid transit systems has become a key area for infrastructure development in the major cities of India,” said Mott MacDonald’s project director Karthikeyan Ramalingam.
“At present, metro projects are being implemented in seven cities and Mott Macdonald is involved in all of these. Our appointment builds upon our existing work for Larsen and Toubro as detailed design consultants on the Chennai Metro rail project.”
The Hyderabad metro rail network will serve 66 stations over a distance of 71km divided across three corridors.
Construction on the scheme is due to be completed by the end of 2017.
