A consortium led by Chinese state-backed contractor E-Hualu Information Technology Co. Ltd. has won a 578 million yuan ($83.69 million) bid to build a bus rapid-transit (BRT) system in Pakistan.

The project in the city of Peshawar, 187 kilometers (116 miles) east of the capital, Islamabad, will see the consortium supply, install and maintain the BRT system, the Beijing-based company said in a statement (link in Chinese) on Monday. E-Hualu’s two partners are Beijing Santel Technology & Trading Corp. and the Pakistan-based LMK Resources Pakistan (Private) Ltd.
