14 Bidders for Raipur – Vizag Expressway’s Packages OD-7 & OD-8

14 construction firms have submitted a total of 20 bids for packages OD-7 and OD-8 of the 464 km Raipur – Visakhapatnam Economic Corridor (NH-130CD & EC-15), also known as Raipur – Vizag Expressway.

This new six-lane highway will have a few sections that are access-controlled with a greenfield alignment connecting the states of Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh.

Both these civil construction packages are within Odisha near the border with Andra Pradesh. Package OD-7 is just 4 km long connecting Baraja – Kandili, so I’m inclined to believe it has a viaduct or tunnel section. Package OD-8 is 22.533 km long and will connect Kandili – Tumbiguda.

National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) invited tenders for their construction in August with a 2 year deadline and Rs. 759.75 crore & Rs. 1327.18 crore estimates.

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 for each package.

    Why L&T is not bidding in road project like here and many other projects.

    • ASHHAR RUMI RAZA says:

      Because LNT is not intended to bid in any other mode than EPC, since all the recent projects of NHAI are in Ham or BOT mode so LNT is not bidding for the same.

    • Jitendra Kumar says:

      L&T is very poor company in india
      L&T eating payment of Contractor/Labour.
      L&T is going Black list in many indian project.
