Lucknow Metro Begins Tendering Process for 3.44 KM Underground Section From Charbagh to KD Singh Babu Stadium
The Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) yesterday afternoon kick-started the tendering process for the 3.44 KM underground section from Charbagh to KD Singh Babu Stadium! The notice inviting open tenders/bids from infrastructure/construction companies can be viewed here on LMRC’s website and here on Infraline Energy’s website for engineering notices.
LKCC-06 “Contract-LKCC-06 -Design and Construction of Tunnel from start of underground ramp (near Charbagh Metro Station) to end of underground ramp (near K.D.Singh Babu Stadium metro station) including three underground metro stations (viz. Hussainganj, Sachivalaya and Hazratganj) including Architectural finishes , E& M, TVS, ECS etc. on North – South Corridor of Lucknow MRTS, Phase 1 A Project at Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.
Approx Cost: INR 1280 Crores
Completion period of the Work: 36 months
Date & time of Submission of Tender: 25.01.2016 @ 15:00 Hrs.
Date & time of opening of Tender: 25.01.2016 @ 15:05 Hrs.
In my previous post announcing the impending bidding process, I had included some maps which I’ve reproduced below:
The underground section will consist of 3 stations at Hussainganj, State Secretariat and Hazratganj as shown below:
In less 3 months from now, we’ll have a winner! Once the Letter of Acceptance (LOA) is handed over, the civil contractor will then have 36 months to build the line. Followed by that, it would take at least another year for completing station work, track & ancillary systems installation, testing and safety inspection. So if all pieces fall into place without any delays, then the earliest this section will open for commercial operations would be in 2020.
