Experience breeds smart towns
Drawing on the experience gained after years of developing new towns in Hong Kong, a multinational engineering and design firm builds the first township along the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor from the ground up.
AECOM – DELHI-MUMBAI INDUSTRIAL CORRIDOR
AECOM provided full programme management services for the Dholera Special Investment Region (DSIR) as part of the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) Development Corporation’s new cities infrastructure programme. The programme aims to transform India’s manufacturing and service base by developing a number of smart, sustainable and industrial cities along the 921-mile (1,482km) long corridor between Delhi and Mumbai, the first to be developed being the 347-square-mile (900-square-kilometre) township of DSIR.
AECOM’s project scope consists of implementing all base infrastructure including water supply, sewerage, roads, highways, power and rail; performing extensive flood-control and drainage measures to protect the future city; and overseeing the development and execution of all public-private partnership delivered projects, such as the rail connecting Ahmedabad to Dholera, industrial wastewater treatment and potable water treatment plant.
In the process of developing new towns in Hong Kong, AECOM's experts had overcome the land constraints and technical challenges while being able to appreciate the needs of these developments at various stages, from engaging stakeholders, conceptual designs to construction, enhancement to completion, and finally making the entire project more resilient within a short timeframe. The unique experience, advanced technology and knowledge used can be readily put into practice in the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor.
