Vadodara and Bharuch are two cities in Gujarat State, known for their rapid strides in industrialization. The cities boast of industries like cotton textile, chemical, machinery, ink, glass, furniture and consumer goods with the entire belt between these two cities encompassing a vast expanse of industrial hubs. Vadodara-Bharuch Tollway Limited (VBTL) is a matured road asset. This 83.17 km stretch on NH 8 between Vadodara and Bharuch is part of the Golden Quadrilateral and, therefore, forms an important link between the capital state of Delhi and the commercial capital of the country - Mumbai.
The scope of this INR 14.5 billion project included the widening of the existing four-lane road to six-lane divided road with best in class amenities and support infrastructure. A superb facility with uniquely designed Toll Plazas, VBTL stands testimony to the engineering excellence of L&T. VBTL, an SPV with 100% shareholding by L&T IDPL, completed the construction of this project well ahead of the scheduled completion date, and commenced its commercial operations in June 2009. The Company will operate and maintain the road asset for a concession period of 15 years.
