Hindustan Construction Company (HCC) on Thursday said it has bagged a Rs. 162-crore order from North Frontier Railway to develop a rail tunnel.

Under the contract, the company will build a tunnel between Kambiron Road and Thingou stations on the new railway line coming up between Jiribam and Tupul in Imphal, Manipur.

HCC will be developing the tunnel with its Hyderabad- based JV partner Coastal Projects, in which it holds 60 per cent stake.

The project is expected to be completed in 28 months, HCC said.
