IL&FS Transportation Networks India Limited (ITNL) is an integrated platform with the technical, managerial, financial, and governance framework to support and participate in the highway development programme of the Government of India.
After successfully demonstrating the viability of the PPP approach to develop, finance, and implement road projects, IL&FS incorporated ITNL in 2000. ITNL acts as developer, sponsor, construction manager, and operator of surface transportation infrastructure, taking greenfield projects from conceptualization, through commissioning, to operations and maintenance. It also identifies investment opportunities in existing road infrastructure.
ITNL leads the market in the Indian transport infrastructure sector with more than 14,000 lane-kilometres in a portfolio of over 30 projects.
ITNL has implemented benchmark projects across India, from the country’s first PPP toll bridge, to India’s longest road tunnel, built in the Himalayas. It has pioneered best-in-class standards of technology and facilities on its highways, bridges, flyovers and roads connecting major industrial and social centres.
All of these diverse projects reflect the IL&FS Group’s trademark innovation and excellence in the design, financing, construction, and the operations phase.
With its track record of successful bids, ITNL has grown into the largest Build-Operate-Transfer road asset owner in the country.
ITNL has also ventured into other transportation sub-sectors such as Railways, Urban Transportation Systems and Border Checkposts.
Roads to New Lands
Having implemented projects across 17 states within India, ITNL has also expanded its footprint internationally, covering Spain, Portugal, Latin America and USA in the West, China in the East, as well as Africa and the UAE. To strengthen its capacities and broaden its capabilities, ITNL acquired Elsamex S.A., a Spanish company with specialist skills in O&M of infrastructure assets, especially roads.
