AECOM wins rail contracts in India

Posted on March 10, 2009

AECOM Technology Corp. was awarded two passenger rail contracts in India worth approximately $50 million.

The two contracts, which cover work on passenger railways serving the cities of Chennai and Kolkata, will leverage AECOM’s design as well as project and construction management services. AECOM will perform the work on both projects as a part of joint ventures.

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.
