Strange, where is L&T
Probably had a good reason to sit out
Can u put up the reason pls?
Glad to read about projects other than metro
Any news on Delhi’s UER-II?
Bids for 5 packages were invited in December 2019. Current technical bid opening date is Feb 19.
Cool, thanks…pls do drop a post on that once the tech bids are open..
Will do! Dates got moved btw. Submission deadline is now March 9 and opening is March 10.
can you provide the break-up (chainage) of these five packages?
Is land acquisition complete?
Any deadline set by NHAI to complete the project? I hope they won’t be unrealistic and say 2years (the way NHAI/Gadkari recently announced Delhi-Dehradun Exp to be completed in 2years).
No idea of land acquisition. Chainage in KM (all 6 lane except P4 with 730 day deadline):
> P1: 0.700 to 15.000 (NH1 to Karala-Kanjhawala Rd)
> P2: 15.000 to 28.450 (Karala-Kanjhawala Rd to Nangloi Najafgarh Rd)
> P3: 28.450 to 38.111(Nangloi Najafgarh Rd – Dwarka Sec 24)
> P4: 0 to 29.600 (Spur from Bawana Ind Area to Sonipat Bypass)
> P5: 0 to 7.269 (Spur to Bahadurgarh Bypass)
We’ve reached the end of this comment thread, so just start a new one if you want 🙂
Cool, saw the final alignment DPR at this link:
The project is gonna be quite a challenge – especially to work around the hindrances at Barwala, Mukunpur Dabas, Dichaun, Aman Vihar, Roshanpura…
As reported in these HT articles, Modi has pulled up the nincompoops recently – asking them to take quick decisions…literally calling them ‘Babus’ in Parliament.
NHAI / DDA can’t keep on borrowing time to work out a solution. This road should have been operational a decade back…it’s a pity that the Prime Minister has to intervene for every 5km patch of road work..

Who is the consultant
Appreciate Mr.krishna’s proposal ..good suggestion ..needed urgently ..on top priority
4th ring road ?
There’s 1) inner ring road 2) outer ring road and this current 3) peripheral ring road. Which is the 4th ?
Chennai Bypass. That’s the one between inner and outer. In the above map, it’s the second from the right.
On a side note – all of these aren’t perfect rings or even semi-circular (apart from CPRR), but are referred to as a ring road in official and non-official content.
In the mentioned project , which has been awarded to Tata projects, does Tata have a joint venture partner or, they participated alone ?
I’m told they’re in a JV with “IAV VOZ”. Never heard of them. Google doesn’t suggest anything either.
I want to apply for the post of survey engineer
Any idea whether the construction is going to start from port or from thachur?
Don’t know. Will have to wait and watch.

Haven’t heard about Section 2’s bids getting opened. Must still be in technical bid evaluation stage.
