New Delhi: Infrastructure major Larsen & Toubro (L&T) on Friday said its construction arm in consortium with Japan’s Kyosan Electric Manufacturing Company Limited has bagged a ‘significant’ order from the Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India (DFCCIL). Though the company did not specify the exact value of the contract, as per its specification a significant contract ranges between Rs 1,000 crore to Rs 5,000 crore.

“Railway Strategic Business Unit of L&T Construction’s Transportation Infrastructure IC in consortium with Kyosan Electric Manufacturing Co Ltd, Japan has won a significant order in the form of 3 packages from the DFCCIL,” the company said in a statement.
