As an industry leader in augmenting capabilities for urban mass rail transit systems, L&T is involved in the construction of metro rail systems in almost all the major Indian cities including Hyderabad, which is one of the world's most prestigious and the biggest metro contracts on BOT basis. On the global front, L&T has made inroads in the Gulf region and is currently executing metro projects at Riyadh and Doha.

Structures developed by L&T for the metro, range from elevated rail corridors to underground metro rail corridors, station buildings along with alignment and expansive depots. L&T's EPC capability enhances the pace of operations. Technologies adopted include the conventional Drill and Blast Method (DBM), the New Austrian Tunneling Method (NATM), Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM), mechanical excavations and soft tunneling using road headers for underground alignment. Construction methods for erecting super structures include incremental launching and full span 'U' girders for the rapid completion of elevated corridors. The post modern precast yards help fast track projects well before the scheduled time.
