The $3-billion Chennai Metro Rail project includes two rail lines spanning approximately 28 miles, 36 stations and a depot. The value of the project to AECOM is expected to be $30 million.

Meanwhile, the $1-billion Kolkata Metro Rail project encompasses work on the Kolkata East-West line covering approximately 11 miles through the city center and 12 stations. AECOM’s value on the project is expected to be $20 million.

Both projects are scheduled for completion in 2015.
