ITD Cementation India has emerged as the lowest bidder for constructing eight new stations on Nagpur Metro’s 8.15 km Reach-4 elevated section, between Sitabuldi & Prajapati Nagar, after officials from the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MahaMetro) opened the financial bids submitted by different civil infrastructure companies.
MahaMetro invited bids for this package in January 2017 at an estimate value of Rs 180 crores. At this time, ITD Cem’s bid value or the names & bid values of other bidders is not available. Once known, I’ll add it in here.
This section is part of the 18.557 km east-west line, and overall the 3rd of 4 sections where construction will start, with work already underway at Reach 1 (Sitabuldi-Khapri) and Reach 3 (Sitabuldi-Lokmanya Nagar). A major part of it will be built on the congested Central Avenue where 8 new stations are planned to come at Nagpur Railway Station, Dosar Vaisya Square, Agrasen Square, Chittaroli Square, Telephone Exchange, Ambedkar Square, Vaishnao Devi Square & Prajapati Nagar.
In the coming weeks, if no issues arise, then this will become ITD Cementation’s 3rd civil construction project in Nagpur – all incidentally on the 18.557 km east-west line:
1. Reach-3 – 10 stations awarded on September 20 2016 – Lokmanya Nagar (near the depot), Bansi Nagar, Vasudev Nagar, Rachna Ring Road Junction, Subhash Nagar, Ambazari Lake View (Dharampeth College), LAD Chowk, Shankar Nagar, Institute of Engineers and Jhansi Rani Square
2. Reach-4 – 8.15 km viaduct awarded on March 24 2017
