Project Outline

India’s first high-speed rail project is a line planned approximately 500 km between Mumbai and Ahmedabad. JIC was awarded a contract from JICA in December 2016 for the detailed design of India’s first high-speed rail project, including preparing design and tender documents and tender support services to NHSRCL. Upon the award, JIC has formed a consortium with Nippon Koei and Oriental Consultants Global for the project. The civil work contract packages include technically challenging structures such as the Mumbai Underground Station, undersea tunnels, sections to be connected to conventional railway stations and special bridges, as well as a general civil work package including long stretched viaducts. We have conducted on-site surveys, developed construction plans and prepared design and tender documents through discussions with NHSRCL to support the tender process. As of now, many civil work packages have started construction. Tendering procedures are also in progress for other packages, such as track, rolling stock, rolling stock depots and maintenance vehicles.
