SMEC has been appointed by the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation to undertake the detailed design of viaduct and stations for Phases 2A and 2B of the Bangalore Metro in the state of Karnataka, India. In Bangladesh, SMEC, together with its subsidiary ACE Consultants, have been awarded the feasibility study and detailed design for a new railway line from Darshana to Meherpur.
Dr Janardhan Sundaram, Executive Director SMEC India, said the two major contracts would further cement the company’s leading position in South Asia’s rail and metro sector.
“This adds to the considerable rail portfolio that SMEC has been developing in Bangladesh and India, where we are also working on the Chennai metro, the dedicated freight corridor and on Mumbai Metro Line 6. In Bangladesh, SMEC is delivering the Subregional Transport Project Preparatory Facility: Rail Component, 120 km Dhaka-Chittagong-Cox’s Bazar line, and 215.22 km Padma Bridge Rail Link Project.
These important infrastructure works will also contribute to economic growth and community livelihoods through improved transport.”
