SUCG Lowest Bidder for Delhi Metro’s Najafgarh – Dhansa BS Extn

SUCG Infrastructure India Pvt Ltd – the Indian subsidiary of Shanghai Urban Construction Group has emerged as the lowest bidder for constructing a 1.218 km underground extension of the Delhi Metro’s 4.295 km Line-9 (Dwarka – Najafgarh) to Dhansa Bus Stand after officials from the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation yesterday opened financial bids submitted by different infrastructure firms.

The Government of India approved this Rs. 565 crore extension in May 2017 and will bear Rs. 107 crores in the form of 50% equity (Rs. 75.50 cr) and subordinate debt, Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) will provide Rs. 323 crore while the rest will be borne by the Delhi Government including equity (Rs. 75.50 cr) and subordinate debt.

DMRC invited bids for this extension’s civil construction, under package CC-126, a few days before the government’s approval with an estimated cost of Rs 300.51 crores, and SUCG Infrastructure India put in the lowest bid at Rs. 335 crores.

Financial bid values submitted by the lowest technically qualified firms –

Firm Bid
SUCG Rs. 335 cr
TPL-Gulermak Rs. 340 cr
Afcons Rs. 380 cr

Besides twin tunnels, the contractor will also be responsible for building the Dhansa Bus Stand Station:

Note – As per one news source, Line-9 will be known as the Grey Line, but the DMRC has not yet confirmed it. With this extension, the line will become 5.513 km long.

If no issues arise, then in the coming days the DMRC will go on to award SUCG Infrastructure with their first independent contract in the 162.495 km Phase 3 project. Prior to this, SUCG partnered up with Larsen and Toubro to build the 6.3 km CC-27 (Hauz Khas – Shankar Vihar) underground section of the 38.235 km Magenta Line.

Once awarded, DMRC would like work to be completed within 36 months (3 years). SUCG is likely to deploy only 1 tunnel boring machine (TBM) to build the tunnels like how HCC did for package CC-66 (Sai Baba Shaft – Najafgarh Station) on the same line.
