The Union Minister for Railways, Ashwini Vaishnaw, virtually flagged off L&T-built full span launching equipment from the company's manufacturing facilities in Kancheepuram near Chennai. It has been developed for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed rail project. Considering the enormous scale of construction involved in constructing the 508-km long Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed rail corridor, of which L&T's share is 63%, there is a need to adopt innovative, state-of-the-art construction techniques and methodologies to hasten the pace of execution.

The full span launching equipment with first-of-their-kind straddle carriers and girder transporters will transport and erect full span girders as a single piece for the double track. The 40-meter-long girders, weighing 975 MT, will be the heaviest PSC box girders to be precast and erected in India's construction industry. Chief Executive Officer & MD, L&T, S N Subrahmanyan informed that the equipment has been entirely designed and developed in-house and customized to the specific requirements of the high-speed rail project that is by far the largest EPC project ever to be awarded in India. There are numerous challenges to build at such speed and scale, but the company is committed to taking on this mammoth challenge to deliver India's first high-speed rail project on a schedule matching global standards.
