4 Bidders for 8 Bhopal Metro Stations’ Construction Work

4 construction firms have submitted bids to construct 8 elevated stations between AIIMS and Subhash Nagar on Bhopal Metro’s 14.99 km Line-2 after Madhya Pradesh Metro Rail Co Ltd. (MPMRCL) opened technical bids today for Package BH-02.

This line of the Bhopal Metro Phase 1 project will partially be funded by the European Investment Bank (EIB) and connect Karond Circle – AIIMS through a mix of 16 elevated and underground stations. Per the specifications listed, elevated station boxes will be 21 meters wide and 140 meters long to handle a maximum of 6 coaches.

MPMRCL invited tenders for its construction in March 2021 – 34 months after Bhopal’s first and only tender – with an estimate of Rs. 421 crore and deadline of 847 days (2.32 years).

Bidders:

  • Bansal Constrution
  • Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd (RVNL)
  • URC Construction (URCC)
  • YFC Projects

Package: BH-02

Brief Scope: Design and Construction of Eight (8) Elevated Metro Rail Stations including Viaduct portion within the stations and Transition spans on either side of the stations (AIIMS, Alkapuri, Habibganj Naka, Habibganj, M.P Nagar Zone-1, DB City Mall, Kendriya Vidyalaya and Subhash Nagar) for Bhopal Metro Rail Project

The 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.

Per the notice, this new package will be specifically funded by the European Investment Bank (EIB) with whom the Government of India signed a EUR 400 million (approx. Rs. 3400 crore) loan in December 2019.

The project’s first civil package, which covers AIIMS – Subhash Nagar’s elevated viaduct, is under construction by Dilip Buildcon since February 2019 and funded through equity contribution by the central & state governments. With pending tender notices for other civil and all systems work, I see Bhopal’s Phase 1 easily turning into a decade long project.
