India Monorail System

Once again from Professor Kodama.

Bombardier shortlisted for major India project

A consortium led by Bombardier of Canada is one of three groups that have been short-listed to supply a $1.6 billion, four-corridor monorail system for Mumbai, India, a city of about 15 million. The other bidders on the list include India’s Larsen & Toubro, with Malaysian partner Sconi Engineering, and Japan’s Hitachi Group. What’s at stake is 30-year build-operate-transfer contract, with final bids due in May and construction scheduled to start in June and be completed by mid-2010.
