Bids Invited for Ahmedabad Metro Phase 2’s Package C3

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.


Package: C3

  • Tender Notice Published: 2/7/2022
  • Estimate: Not Disclosed
  • Completion Period: Not Disclosed
  • Bid Submission Deadline: 24/03/2022 at 3:00 PM
  • Technical Bid Opening: 24/03/2022 at 3:30 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

Package C3: Sector-1 – Mahatma Mandir section with indicative location of stations – view Ahmedabad Metro Phase 2 route map & information

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 stationsAfcons Infrastructure
C2: GNLU to Gandhinagar Sector-1 (6.478 km) with 5 stationsRanjit Buildcon

    Why do you think completion time not disclosed ??

    • TMRG says:

      It’s strange. Must definitely be in the more detailed tender docs. Otherwise biz dev teams wouldn’t know how to base their calculations and bid.
