Max Infra Wins Raipur – Vizag Expressway’s Package OD-8

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.

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.

Over the past month, I’ve created a bunch of new expressway pages for ongoing & upcoming projects, and linked them up on the site’s menu bar. I’ve got a long backlog I’m working against, so there’s more to be added, especially Surat – Chennai Expressway which essentially is a combination of economic corridors. If you’ve got any on your mind, leave a comment below.

Also check out the Airports section in the menu bar under ‘Misc’. I’ve added a bunch of new and ongoing projects:
