KCC & CDS Win Delhi-Amritsar-Katra Expressway’s Packages 1-3

KCC Buildcon and CDS Infra Projects on Friday emerged as the lowest bidders for constructing the first 3 packages of the roughly 650 km Delhi – Amritsar – Katra (DAK) Expressway after National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) opened financial bids.

This 4-lane greenfield project with a proposed RoW of 90m starts at KMP Expressway north-west of Delhi, and will be expandable to 8 lanes with provision of service roads in the future.

Its Detailed Project Report (DPR) and alignment studies were prepared by Feedback Infrastructure. Within Punjab, a 99 km spur will be constructed from km 306 to form half a ring around Amritsar and connect with its airport.

NHAI invited bids for these first 3 packages, all within Haryana, in September 2020 with a 2 year deadline. Technical bids were opened on December.

Package 1

Brief Scope: Construction of four lane Greenfield Delhi Amritsar Katra Expressway from Jussur Kheri on KMP Expressway to Junction with Rohtak Panipat road (NH 709) near Rukhi Paani village (Km 0.000 to Km 34.000) on HAM under Bharatmala Pariyojna in Haryana

  • Contract: NHAI/BM/ DAKExpressway/2020/Pkg.1
  • Length: 34.00 km
  • Bidders: 16 (14 technically qualified)
  • NHAI’s estimate: Rs. 1048.75 crore

Krishna ConstructionRs. 1193.74 crore
Shivalaya Construction Co.Rs. 1252.11 crore
Gawar ConstructionRs. 1290.65 crore
GR InfraprojectsRs. 1324.22 crore

Package 2

Brief Scope: Construction of four-lane Greenfield Delhi Amritsar Katra Expressway from Junction with Rohtak Panipat road (NH709) near Rukhi Paani village to Junction with Jind Panipat road (NH352A) near Gangana (Km 34.000 to Km 60.800) on HAM under BP in Haryana

  • Contract: NHAI/BM/ DAKExpressway/2020/Pkg.2
  • Length: 26.80 km
  • Bidders: 17 (15 technically qualified)
  • NHAI’s estimate: Rs. 854.03 crore

I don’t have a proper map showing the entire expressway’s route, but here’s its route within Punjab via Feedback Infra’s EIA Report

Package 3

Brief Scope: Construction of four-lane Greenfield Delhi Amritsar Katra Expressway from Junction with Jind-Panipat road NH352A near Gangana village to Junction with Jind Karnal road NH709A near Alewa village (Km 60.800 to Km 91.400) on HAM under BP in Haryana

  • Contract: NHAI/BM/ DAKExpressway/2020/Pkg.3
  • Length: 30.6 km
  • Bidders: 15 (14 technically qualified)
  • NHAI’s estimate: Rs. 911.20 crore

Financial Bid Values of Lowest 5 Technically-Qualified Bidders:

KCC Rs. 1040.07 crore
KrishnaRs. 1125.85 crore
ShivalayaRs. 1142.59 crore
GawarRs. 1184.76 crore
IRCONRs. 1193.28 crore

Dilip Buildcon yesterday announced it had been awarded two contracts for the Bangalore – Chennai Expressway’s Phase 1 Packages 1 & 2 despite their bids being about 15% higher than NHAI’s estimates. If that’s anything to go by, then KCC and CDS should also be awarded contracts in the coming weeks. NHAI has a much larger appetite than I had originally thought.

The entire DAK Expressway project has been divided into roughly 20 packages and bidding has started for at least 10 of them. This weekend I’m going to create a dedicated information page with a status of each and link it on this page. If someone reading this already has a list, please leave a comment or drop me an email here. That would really help!

Update: New page is now ready – check it out here. Phase 1’s 397 km Delhi – Gurdaspur section has 12 packages and 99 km Nakodar-Amritsar spur has 3 packages.

    Just a correction – the KMP starting point for the expressway is a village named Jasaur Kheri (Not Jussur). I live nearby, so I know that. (This place: https://goo.gl/maps/33qZuD7GaPQmMqeS8)
