Mumbai, April 12
L&T has been awarded a Rs 165-crore order by the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) for providing a water supply system under the Greater Bangalore Water Supply Project (GBWSP) scheme.
The BWSSB is extending the Cauvery water supply facility to Greater Bangalore, an area of 240 sq km encompassing seven city municipalities and one town municipality.
According to an official release, L&T will provide a water supply system to almost all the municipalities. The work, to be completed in 12 months, involves laying of a ductile iron pipeline network of 1,600 km and about one lakh house connections.
It is proposed that the infrastructure built under the GBWSP scheme would be operated and maintained by BWSSB, including revenue realisation through delegated management contract mechanism over five years after the completion of the project.
