Mott MacDonald appointed on Jaipur metro project, India

Mott MacDonald, the leading global management, engineering and development consultancy, has been appointed by the Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation as technical and general consultant for the forthcoming Jaipur metro project in India.

The INR 100,000 million (US$ 2.2 billion), 35km long metro project will be comprised of two corridors, north to south and east to west and is a combination of both underground and elevated stations. The metro is being delivered to ease traffic congestion, reduce travel time and reduce carbon emissions in the city. Jaipur is the second fastest growing city in India and its population is anticipated to reach over 8 million by 2031.

Mott MacDonald will be assisting the Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation during the bid process, preparing technical documents and reviewing existing work.

Project director Gaurav Srivastava said, “The city of Jaipur is one of India’s most sought after tourist destinations and we are delighted to play a key role in such a prestigious project. This project continues our association with metro development in India, having previously been involved in metro projects in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi and Kolkata. This project will be quite challenging as we aim to provide innovative solutions to the interchange of the two corridors between underground and elevated stations.”

“With Mott MacDonald’s world class expertise, knowledge and experience on some of the world’s most iconic metro projects, we look forward to assisting the client achieve a more efficient and sustainable mode of transport for the city of Jaipur,” Gaurav added.

The Jaipur metro project is due for commission mid 2013.
