National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) today opened technical bids for the 82.15 km Delhi – Meerut RRTS Line‘s Package 12B to reveal 3 firms have submitted bids to design, supply and erect pre-engineered steel roof structures at 12 elevated stations.
NCRTC had invited bids for this work in 2 lots in September right after Sam India Builtwell emerged as the lowest bidder for Package 12A for similar roof-work at Package 1 and 2’s Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, Guldhar and Duhai stations.
For Package 12B, 7 of these 12 stations form a part of the 33 km Package 3 (under construction by Larsen & Toubro) – the ones at Murad Nagar, Modi Nagar South, Modi Nagar North, Meerut South, Partapur, Rithani & Shatabdi Nagar. The rest 5 are a part of the 12 km Package 7 (Larsen & Toubro is lowest bidder) and are named Brahmapuri, MES Colony, Daurli, Meerut North and Modipuram.
NCRTC’s combined estimate is $8.71 million (Rs 63.79 crore) and they expect the assigned contractor(s) to complete all civil work in 1358 days (3.7 years) after the contracts are awarded.
