The Rail Land Development Authority will be conducting virtual roadshows for six days on redevelopment of the New Delhi Railway Station project from Thursday to Tuesday with investors and developers from several countries to discuss the project concept and proposed transaction structure.

The station is going to be developed on a Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Transfer model for a concession period of 60 years, the RLDA release said.

The project, which is expected to cost around $680 million, saw participation from Adani, GMR, JKB Infra, Arabian Construction Company and Anchorage in its pre-bid meeting in September last year, the release added.

The station, located in the heart of Delhi, is close to the national capital’s prime commercial hub, Connaught Place, and is connected to the Indira Gandhi International Airport through a Delhi Metro line.
