The Railways Strategic Business Group of L&T Construction has recently won a contract to build the Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Project (Phase 2A) for MRT Jakarta. This contract marks L&T’s first EPC Railway Systems Order in the ASEAN region and comes through its partnership with Sojitz Corporation, a Japanese company. L&T refrained from disclosing the exact contract value, categorizing the win as significant, indicating a range between USD 120.7 million and USD 301.7 million.

The contract encompasses the acquisition and implementation of numerous systems across diverse areas, following a design-and-construct approach that includes comprehensive system integration. The project’s scope encompasses Trackworks, Overhead Contact System, Substation System, Power Distribution System, Signaling System & Telecommunication Systems, SCADA Facility, Platform Screen Doors, and adaptations to the equipment installed in the existing OCC, as well as the stations/train sets from Phase-1.
