L&T sets record in stadium construction

Our Bureau

Hyderabad , Oct. 20

LARSEN & Toubro Ltd (L&T) has claimed a new record in speedy construction of a stadium.

In just 70 days flat, its construction division built the entire hockey stadium for the Afro-Asian Games scheduled to be kicked off with a glittering, star-studded opening on October 24 in Hyderabad.

The engineering and construction major deployed 50 engineers and 3,000 workmen, armed with cutting-edge technology round-the-clock to set up the twin ground stadium in an expanse of 13 acres in Gachibowli, about 18 km from here.

The stadia, inaugurated on Monday by the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Mr N. Chandrababu Naidu, would also house the office of the Hockey Federation, change rooms and lounges for players, guests and the media.

L&T has considerable expertise in design and construction of sports facilities.
