MMRDA Invites Bids for Mumbai Metro’s Line-2B and Line-4

This is big. The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) in one go has invited bids from civil infrastructure companies for the construction of 10 civil packages of Mumbai Metro’s new 23.5 km Line-2B (DN Nagar – Bandra – Mandale) and 32.32 km Line-4 (Wadala – Ghatkopar – Mulund – Thane – Kasarvadavali).

This notice inviting tenders comes barely 2 weeks after the country’s Prime Minister unveiled the foundation stone for both elevated lines in the city and very well demonstrates the seriousness in the state government’s plan to improve the city’s transportation.

Unlike Line-3, the MMRDA will execute both lines and hasn’t released their DPRs or a map displaying the exact locations of all stations. However, a rough location of all stations can be viewed here for Line-2 and here for Line-4.

Both lines will meet somewhere near the intersection of SG Barve Marg and Eastern Express Highway in Chembur and at this time, it isn’t known which package the interchange station will be a part of. There’s a possibility of Line-4’s ‘Suman Nagar’ station and Line-2’s ‘EEH’ station being constructed adjacent to each other and linked up via a FOB to allow users to interchange. If that turns out to be correct, then I expect the stations to have one common name by the time they open up for operations.

The MMRDA requires the contractors to complete all packages but CA-13, which has been given 30 months, in only 26 months. Tender documents for all packages will go on sale on January 9, 2017. The last date for submitting bidding documents is 6 pm on March 10, 2017 and if no delays arise due to the bidders requesting for design clarity or more time to prepare, then the bids will be opened & evaluated for eligibility on March 14 at 11 am.

Both of these lines seem to be roughly following the same bidding timeline of Line-2A and Line-7’s 5 civil packages for which the DMRC and MMRDA invited bids in December 2015 & January 2016. Financial bids were opened in Q2 (April & May) to reveal the lowest bidders, and ground-work began right after the monsoons ended in September. If no bidding or financial issues arise, then by the end of this year Mumbai will have about 124.42 km of metro lines under construction all over the city – see a list of all lines.

    This is crazy news. 10 packages together must be a new record.

      Yup! Last month, BMRCL invited bids for 5 but over a matter of 3 weeks – see 1st and last. The 40 or so main packages of Delhi’s PH3 were spaced out over 2 years.

    Is it normal to release the packages for bidding without having a DPR in place? Or will it be prepared after the tenders are issued? I think DPRs area a “must” before the initiation of the tendering process. If that is a case why it is not followed by Delhi Metro? Doesn’t DPR add value to the bidding process?

      Hi, the DPRs for both lines have been finalized and approved by the MMRDA and State Govt, but just haven’t been made available to the public which I think is quite unfortunate.

    very progressive and development friendly government, in just one and half year, metro is spreading in all directions.

    Curious for Line 3; why is the route not connecting IIT Mumbai. Seems like a logical expansion and connect it to Line 4.

      That would have been nice, but they prefer building a new east-west line(#6). If I had it my way, I’d split the line at SEEPZ with one branch going east towards Aarey & Powai, and the other west towards Lokhandwala

    Exactly that’s what I thought, how shall the contractors bid without knowing what they are signing up for. Weird!!

    Hii. I’m a 4th year architecture student from Mumbai . I have always been very interested in the govt. infrastructural projects like bridges, road construction, metros etc. I wanted to ask you how can an architect participate in such projects specially in India where engineers are given more priority in terms of everything than architects. Also I always wished to participate in such large scale projects, but never got an opportunity to become a part of it in any way. I know it’s too much to ask for but is there any way you could help me with it or maybe just suggest few manner in which I could be handy and helpful.
