Godrej Awarded Mumbai Metro Line-2’s Station Facade Contracts

Last week, Godrej and Boyce Manufacturing Company Ltd. was awarded two contracts for external facade works at 9 stations on the 18.6 km Mumbai Metro Line-2A (Yellow Line) which’ll connect Dahisar East and DN Nagar (Andheri West) neighborhoods.

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had invited bids for four packages comprising a total of 17 stations in mid-June with a completion period of 6 months. Financial bids for the other two packages have also been opened to reveal NCC and J Kumar as the lowest bidders. LoAs for those two contracts are yet to be issued though as the bids are substantially higher than DMRC’s estimate.

15 of these stations have been renamed by the MMRDA over the past year – see their new names here.

Here are some tender drawings prepared by AECOM Asia – Kirti Structural Consultants – Absolute Architects JV with station designs showing a heavy use of glazing and yellow lovers (similar to window blinds) in its facade to represent the line’s colour.

Back in April 2020, Studio Archohm had released a small render of Mandapeshwar Station (formerly IC Colony) with a design similar to that of Line-7’s Akurli Station which is in an advanced stage of completion. Here’s a new full blown render of it:

In May, MMRDA invited bids for similar facade works on 12 of its 16.5 km Line-7’s stations. Financial bids for it have also been opened – I’ll share their results whenever I’m aware.

With this development, local residents in Mumbai’s western suburbs should start seeing facade works commencing on both Line-2A and Line-7’s stations by November.
