The contract to Nagarjuna includes one big and two small bridges, a station at the airport and a depot at Khapri. The line here will run at-grade (ground-level). As per this, a tender to appoint a General Consultant will be floated in the coming days. The general consultant will supervise the construction of the entire project including civil work, installation of electrical system, solar equipment and trial run etc.
