"Larsen & Toubro is set to emerge as the lowest bidder for design and construction of civil works of high speed rail corridor of Mumbai and Ahmedabad. The company has bidded ₹24,985 cr for constructing 237.1 km bullet train projects. This project is the largest among all construction lines covering 47% of 508.2 km project. Mumbai and Ahmedabad is the first bullet train project in India, which is supported by Japan. In competitive bidding, three bidders involving seven infrastructure companies participated in it. Other bidders were Afcon Infrastructure-Ircon International-JMC Projects India consortium and Tata Project-NCC-J Kumar Infra Projects-HSR Consortium. We see this as a positive development for the Company, as winning such big orders in a muted ordering activity environment alleviates new order concerns."
