Technical bids were opened in December-end 2020 to reveal 3 bidders. Within those, two consortia qualified after technical evaluation was completed last week where the Tata JV also scored the highest technical score.

Tata JV’s bid works out to be approximately Rs. 1111 crore. When awarded, they will be onboard with a tenure of 96 months.

Per NHSRCL’s press release, their scope will include supervision for all 13 civil works packages including viaducts, concrete / steel bridges, tunnels (undersea & mountain tunnels), civil work of all 12 stations, maintenance depots, and Training Institute building.

NHSRCL last week tweeted that more than 110 piling machines and other construction related machinery are now at work on the 237 km Package C4 which runs from the Maharashtra / Gujarat border near Vapi to Vadodara. Although late, the appointment of a dedicated PMC team will now greatly help manage, provide oversight and leadership to NHSRCL in executing the project.

      Not sure. I did hear about a potential conflict of interest situation arising earlier though, but thought that was sorted.
