"The railways business of L&T Construction has secured a contract from NHSRCL to construct 116 km route of High-Speed ballastless track works for Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail (MAHSR) project, popularly referred to as the bullet train project," the company said in a statement. Upon completion, this slab track system will enable trains to travel at a speed of up to 320 kilometre per hour.

The scope of work includes design, supply, construction and testing and commissioning track works on a design-build lump sum price basis for the double line high speed railway between Vadodara and Sabarmati in Gujarat.
As per the company, a contract valued at Rs 2,500-5,000 crore is a large order. Japanese Shinkansen track technology will be adopted in this project.
At present, the company is executing various ballastless track projects in multiple metro projects in India and overseas.
