Hyderabad: L&T, Telengana stare at fresh tussle over metro rail project

Engineering giant Larsen and Toubro and the Telangana government could be headed for yet another face-off over the execution of the Rs.16,375-crore metro rail project in Hyderabad.

L&T Metro Rail, which has suffered time and cost overruns, both before and after the formation of Telangana, has a July 2017 deadline for completing the 72-km metro rail project which will criss-cross Hyderabad in three corridors.

Telangana officials and L&T executives confirmed that the infrastructure firm has sent a fresh request to the state seeking extension of the construction deadline by at least 18 months and compensation for various impediments.
