All 42 bids have now been sent for technical bid evaluation which can take a couple months to complete. When that is done, the financial bids of the technically qualified bidders will be opened to reveal who’s the lowest bidder and most likely contractor for each package.

The project’s feasibility report has a detailed description of its route with a list of interchanges, major and minor river bridges, including a 4.39 km tunnel through Matheran Eco-Sensitive Zone – a part of Package 17.

The entire Delhi – Mumbai expressway has been divided into 4 sections with a total of 52 tenders / packages – see a list and their status here.

As shared yesterday in Package 26’s post – while sections of this project may open in 2022, ongoing long tendering delays makes me believe the entire project will be ready no sooner than 2024.

    As per feasibility report, ‘MMRDA planned to develop a Multi-Modal Corridor(MMC) which connects SPUR alignment at km 79+800 and further connect at JNPT and Aulibag. During the meeting between MMRDA & NHAI, it was decided to have a common corridor of MMC & SPUR beyond km 79+783(village Morbe) to JNPT’ So looks like pkg 18 will be built by MMRDA and not by NHAI.

    how is acquisition being done at interchange by NHAI ?
    Do they acquire whole boundary of interchange or only the road width ?

      Typically entire area is acquired, but I’ve seen them sometimes leave the area between interchange loops for farming.
