Atlas Awarded Delhi – Mumbai Expressway’s Package 26

Atlas Constructions Pvt. Ltd. on this Thursday was awarded a Rs. 2,150 crore contract for Package 26 of the 1350 km Delhi – Mumbai Expressway (DME) project per the latest status report published by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI).

This 8 lane greenfield access-controlled section in eastern Gujarat’s Dahod District is the final package of the 844 km Sohna – Vadodara section’s 31 packages to be tendered out. Its 32.835 km alignment connects Chhayan village on the Madhya Pradesh-Gujarat border with Hathiyavan village.

NHAI had invited tenders for its construction back in June 2020 with a 2 year deadline. Technical bids were opened in July to reveal 18 bidders.

If someone has bid results or a copy of the LOA, then connect with me here and I can add them into the post.

Brief Scope: Construction of 8 Lane AC expressway starting from MP-Gujarat Border near Chhayan village and ending after Bridge Over Hadaf River near Hathiyavan village (Ch.696.920 to 729.755) section of Delhi-Vadodara GA(NH-148N) on EPC Mode under BMP in Gujarat

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.

With this development, all 31 packages on the 844 km Sohna – Vadodara section have finally been awarded.

While sections of it may open in 2022, the tendering delays encountered for this package and others on the 354 km Vadodara – Virar section and 92 km JNPT Spur makes me believe the entire project will be ready no sooner than 2025.

    Delhi-Vadodara-Surat section should be ready by Dec 2023 as Delhi-Vadodara is EPC entirely. Surat-Virar, that means w/o JNPT spur, may go live by Dec 2024 if all the tenders (all are through HAM) are awarded by Mar 2022.

    Why don’t they simply upgrade the Nashik – Agra Expressway and connect it with Yamuna Expressway, Mumbai – Nashik Expressway and the Mumbai – Nagpur Expressway. Instead of taking the highway through Haryana.

    Construction of approx. 440km (out of 1380km) has not started as yet; but they still claim “The expressway is expected to be completed and open to public traffic by Mar’23″…

    Possibility of the Sohna-Virar stretch getting completed by March 2023 is ‘Zilch’…

    …till then, enjoy this image:
