Gujarat Metro Rail Corporation (GMRC) last week invited tenders for the construction of Ahmedabad Metro Phase 2 project’s 7.553 km Sector-1 – Mahatma Mandir section in Gandhinagar.
This is the 3rd and final civil construction tender notice for this 28.254 km new phase which will see Ahmedabad’s north-south Red Line getting extended by 22.838 km from Motera Stadium to Mahatma Mandir via 20 new stations.
This section will consist of 7 elevated stations at Sachivalaya, Akshardham, Juna Sachivalaya, Sector-16, Sector-24 and Mahatma Mandir. Similar to Surat Metro’s latest tender notice for CS5, GMRC hasn’t hasn’t provided an estimate, which is fine, but surprisingly not even a completion period.

- Completion Period: Not Disclosed
- Bid Submission Deadline: 24/03/2022 at 3:00 PM

Scope: Construction of 7.553 kms elevated viaduct and 7 nos. of stations (incl. E&M, Architectural Finishing, Roofing, Plumbing, Signage, etc.) from Sector-1 to Mahatma Mandir (ch. 31945.443m to 39498.302m, Package C3) in connection with Ahmedabad Metro Rail Project, Phase-2
This section’s design was prepared by SYSTRA MVA Consulting (India) as the DDC, and its construction will be financed by Agence Française de Développement (AFD) which I expect should begin in Q4 2022.
The first 2 sections of Phase 2 are well under construction with both contractors commencing U-girder launching activity in Q4 2021:
|C1: Motera to GNLU (8.124 km) and GNLU to GIFT City (5.420 km) with 10 stations||Afcons Infrastructure|
|C2: GNLU to Gandhinagar Sector-1 (6.478 km) with 5 stations||Ranjit Buildcon|
