16 Bidders for Kanpur Lucknow Expressway’s Package 1

February 23, 2022 Update: PNC Infratech is lowest bidder – see details.

December 27, 2021 Original Post: 16 construction firms have submitted bids to build the 17.52 km Package 1 of the 62.7 km Kanpur – Lucknow Expressway (NE-6) project after the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) opened technical bids.

This 6 lane access-controlled highway will be upgradeable to 8 lanes and connect Shaheed Path in Lucknow with Azad Chauraha near Kanpur’s Ganga Bridge. It will run parallel to NH27 and consist of a 3.375 km elevated portion between Amausi and Bani which lies under Package 1’s scope.

NHAI invited tenders for its construction under the Hybrid Annuity Mode (HAM) model in September 2021 with a 2.5 year deadline and Rs. 1675.18 crore estimate.

India’s environment ministry hasn’t issued a NOC for the project’s construction due its alignment passing through forest land, so a minor realignment might take place where the expressway and Lucknow Ring Road intersect.

Anyhow, all 16 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 this package.

    Any information for package 2

  2. The Indian Railway Guy says:

    That’s a lot of bids, nice

  3. Deepak Sachan says:

    TMRG, you mention in the general description page of this expressway that package 1 is from 10.98 to 28.5 km and package 2 is from 28.5 to 73.7 km. Then how come is the expressway 73.7 km long? Shouldn’t it be about 62.7 (73.7-10.98) km long?

    • TMRG says:

      Great question and you’re likely right.

      I’m not sure why it starts at chainage KM 10.980 and not at 0.00. Maybe NHAI has used old NH-27’s chainage as a baseline. Maybe they are considering to upgrade 0 to 10.980 km?

      Here’s my understanding:
      0 to 10.980: Old NH27 (won’t be upgraded to eway standards at the moment)
      10.980 to 28.500: Old NH27 (Package 1; brownfield upgrade)
      28.500 to 73.744: Greenfield alignment (Package 2)

      • Rishi Kesh Singh says:

        Actually project is starting from Shaheed path (Can quote as a Inner Ring road) which is having chainage 10.98 (10.98 KM from Starting of NH27)

        No plan for development of 0 to 10.98 as of now.

        project is only 62 KM.
