Capita Symonds and Populus to work on Mumbai race circuit

A consortium comprising Capita Symonds, Populous and Delhi Integrated Multi Modal Transit System (DIMTS) has been appointed by the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) to prepare the business case for a new multipurpose race circuit and regeneration project in Mumbai, India.

Capita Symonds and Populous have delivered designs for iconic sporting venues such as the London 2012 Olympic Stadium and the surrounding Olympic Park, Wembley Stadium, Wimbledon Tennis Ground, Oval Cricket Ground and Silverstone, the original home of British motorsports.

The consortium’s initial scope of work is to identify the potential location for the circuit and associated development in Mumbai and around the city.

This will be followed by the development of a business case and plan that will assess market demand and the potential opportunities and risks for the sites.
