RVNL Invites Bids for Kolkata Metro Line-3’s Mominpur Extension

Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd. today invited bids for the civil construction of Kolkata Metro Line-3’s Majerhat & Mominpur stations, a 1.326 km viaduct between them which includes a 50m steel girder span between piers P288-P289, and a small 225 meter viaduct ramp at Joka Depot.

Construction on Kolkata’s 16.5 km Line-3’s elevated part has been underway since 2011 by Simplex Infrastructures for 2 packages (4.748 km Joka – Behala and 4.762 km Behala – Mominpur), but work couldn’t earlier begin on Majerhat and Mominpur stations due to severe land acquisitions issues and pending approvals from the Indian Railways.

The construction of Majerhat Station, along with 2 others at Taratala and Behala Bazar was originally awarded to Gammon India in April 2012 under packages JMS-2. However, after the collapse of an adjacent 1960’s era Railway Overbridge (ROB) in September 2018, Gammon abandoned the Majerhat site due to design issues which has now led to re-tendering for its balance works.

That tender has a closing date of June 29, 2020.
