Hyderabad: Tata Projects Ld on Friday said that its joint venture with China Harbour Engineering Company (TPL-CHEC) has bagged two projects of Mumbai Metro worth Rs 1,048 crore.

The company said it on Friday received the Letter of Award for constructing two packages of the Mumbai Metro Elevated Line 4.

The packages lie on the line extending between Wadala and Kasaradavali. The combined value of both packages is Rs 1,048 crore and requires the contractor to design and construct 14 elevated stations with a viaduct of 12.5 km. This project will improve connectivity with Thane, the Hyderabad-based Tata Projects said in a statement.

“We are happy to contribute to Mumbai’s transformation by building both underground and overground stretches of Mumbai Metro,” said Vivek Singhal COO Urban Infrastructure, Tata Projects.
