RCC Wins Bangalore – Chennai Expressway’s PH3 Package 4

Ramalingam Construction Company on Tuesday emerged as the lowest bidder for constructing the 261 km Bangalore – Chennai Expressway‘s Phase 3 Package 4 after National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) opened financial bids.

This section between Kanchipuram and Sriperumbudur (Km 230.000 to Km 261.705) is 31.7 km long and lies on the eastern-end of the expressway within Tamil Nadu. NHAI invited bids for it in December 2020 with a completion period / deadline of 730 days (2 years). Technical bids were opened on February 23 to reveal 6 bidders.

NHAI’s Estimate: Rs. 1143.86 crore

Financial Bid Values:

Ramalingam Construction CompanyRs. 1461.16 crore
Adani Road TransportRs. 1469.32 crore
DP Jain & Co.Rs. 1509.50 crore
MontecarloRs. 1554.50 crore
Oriental Structural EngineersRs. 1702.76 crore
IRB Infrastructure DevelopersRs. 1708.27 crore

Contract: Phase 3 Package 4

Brief Scope: Construction of Four lane Bangalore Chennai Expressway from Ch. 230.000 to Ch. 261.705 (Kanchepuram to Sriperumbudur Section in the State of Tamil Nadu) under Bharatmala on Hybrid Annuity Mode (Phase III-Package IV)

Phase 2’s Package 2 from 96.000 to km 127.000 (view full route map) via NHAI’s tender docs

Ramalingam’s bid was 27.74% higher than NHAI’s estimate, so it remains to be seen if NHAI will award as-is, negotiate to bring down cost or go in for a retender. Earlier this month, DBL was awarded Phase 1’s Package 1 & 2 despite their bids being 15% higher, but the figure for this is on a different level.

The Bangalore – Chennai Expressway project has been divided up into 3 phases with a total of 10 sections / packages between their terminals at Hoskote and and Sriperumbudur. With this development, financial bids for 9 packages have been opened and contracts for at least 2 of those have been awarded.

A list of all packages and their status can be viewed here.

    Hi ,
    I am still confused about the width of this expressway , will it be a 4 lane expressway like Amritsar Expressway or 8 lane divided expressway like DME ? scope of work in some of the tenders mentions 4 lanes while other mentions 8 lanes… please provide the real insight
