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

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) on Sunday published two seperate notices re-inviting bids from infrastructure firms for constructing Mumbai Metro’s 32.32 km Line-4 (Wadala – Ghatkopar – Mulund – Thane – Kasarvadavali) and the 11.007 km eastern section of Line-2B (Bandra Kurla Complex – Chembur – Mandale).

This development comes three months after the first round of bidding got scrapped when the lowest bids received were 19% to 27% higher than the MMRDA’s estimates. The MMRDA then immediately clubbed Line-2B’s 12.714 km western section (DN Nagar – Bandra West – BKC) into one big package and re-invited bids for which Simplex Infrastructures emerged as the lowest bidder last week.

In the new second round, the MMRDA has not clubbed packages together, but instead increased their estimates by only 2-4% while retaining the same scope of work, so it’ll be interesting to see how the firms respond especially since their internal calculations were collectively way higher in the first round. For comparison, I’ve added the old and new estimates beneath each package’s scope below.

    This part has to be delayed till the other on going activity is completed. So much digging is leaving the commuter hazalled.

    Dear TMRG, Is there any change in Simplex recent awarded contract ? Line 2B – ESIC Ngr to ILFS ?
    Is it final as simplex emerged as lowest bidder or any update in this regard

      MMRDA Executive Committee’s approval is pending for awarding Simplex with that section’s contract. I’ll tweet and a note in my original Simplex post, whenever the contract is awarded.

    This part of the Metro network is completely ignored by MMRDA. Hope it starts soon as we Thanekars are awaiting Metro.

    1) How are they going to build a metro line above existing monorail line (line 4 near bhakti park monorail station) ?
    2) the metro should have been brought till Dadar via existing eastern express highway and continued till CST. But they are taking it to Wadala which is very less populated area and (in future) continuing along Eastern freeway where CST Panvel fast corridor is planned.
    3) Line 4 should have been connected to line 1, it would have benefitted people a lot more.
    4) This is my imagination,
    Instead of Line 3 and line 4 running parallel to each western and central railway respectively,
    Line 3: Colaba- Mahim – BKC- Kurla- Thane- Kasarwadavli
    Line 4: CST- Dadar- Sion- BKC- Airport – SEEPZ
    Line 2: Dahisar- Bandra- Mahim- Sion- Suman Nagar- Mandale

    What is the alignment of line 4 in Thane? Can’t figure out if it’s going to be the median line of EEH and GB Road because of flyovers. If it’s on the service road on the north bound wing then it’s too close to comfort for large commercial establishments.

    Dear DMRG,
    Is it true that line 4 will extend upto Gaimukh/Bhainderpada ??
    Please let us know if you have any updates.
    Thanks.

    Why is metro-4 being given such least priority compared to all other lines.

    Could you please share the exact location on Google Maps for MANPAPDA and TIKUJINI WADI stations on METRO IV. They seem to be too close to each other.
