Max Infra (India) Ltd. on Saturday emerged as the lowest bidder to construct package OD8 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.
Package OD-8 is 22.533 km long and will connect Kandili – Tumbiguda within Odisha near the border with Andra Pradesh.
National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) invited tenders for its construction in August with a 2 year deadline and Rs. 1327.18 crore estimate. Technical bids were opened in December 2021 to reveal 9 bidders.

OD-8’s Scope: Development of Six Lane Kandili Tumbigura Section of NH130CD Road from km 342.500 to km 365.033 under Raipur Visakhapatnam Economic Corridor in the state of Odisha on Hybrid Annuity Mode Pkg-OD8
Max’s bid of Rs. 1285.68 crore was well below NHAI’s estimate of Rs. 1327.18 crore, so a contract should be awarded in the coming weeks. Details on the Raipur – Visakhapatnam Economic Corridor along with a list of all packages and their status can be viewed here.
