Afcons Infra Wins Delhi – Meerut RRTS’ Package 6
Afcons Infrastructure today emerged as the lowest bidder for constructing the 4.3 km Sarai Kale Khan – New Ashok Nagar (Package 6) of the 82.15 km Delhi – Meerut RRTS Line after officials from the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) opened financial bids submitted by different infrastructure companies.
This elevated package includes building a viaduct from Sarai Kale Khan to New Ashok Nagar’s Down-Ramp, a bridge over the Yamuna River, an entry ramp leading to the Jangpura Stabling Yard (where a few Bombardier train-sets will stabled overnight for morning services), and two elevated stations at Sarai Kale Khan and New Ashok Nagar.
NCRTC invited tenders for this package in February 2020 with an estimate of Rs. 1112 crore and opened technical bids in June to reveal 5 bidders.
Financial Bid Values:
|Afcons Infrastructure||Rs. 1061.71 crore|
|Dilip Buildcon Ltd. – Sam (India) Builtwell JV||Rs. 1118.25 crore|
|Larsen & Toubro (L&T)||Rs. 1125.18 crore|
|Tata Projects Ltd. (TPL)||Rs. 1174.46 crore|
|GR Infra Projects Ltd.||Rs. 1197.15 crore|
Brief Scope: DM/CN/COR-OF/095: Construction of elevated viaduct from Sarai Kale Khan station to New Ashok Nagar DN Ramp including Jangpura Entry ramp and two Nos. of elevated stations viz., Sarai Kale Khan & New Ashok Nagar [including Preengineered steel roof structure but excluding Architectural Finishing of Stations] of Delhi – Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) Corridor
Afcons Infra’s bid was Rs 56.54 crores (roughly 5.35%) less than NCRTS’ estimate, so I don’t see any issues cropping up during financial bid evaluation. When that is completed in the coming days, Afcons should receive a LOA with a deadline of 910 (30 months) to complete all works.
Afcons will be assisted by Tandon Consultants Pvt. Ltd – Fountainhead JV who were appointed as the detailed design consultants (DDC) for the Sarai Kale Khan & New Ashok Nagar stations in September 2019. Initial pile load tests here have already been conducted by Continental Piling & Excavation Pvt. Ltd. through a contract awarded to them in February 2020.
