Egis – Louis Berger – AECOM JV on February 2 emerged as the preferred bidder for the General Consultant (GC) contract of the 149.348 km Bengaluru Suburban Rail project (BSRP)
The consortium put in a bid of Rs. 196 crore and their selection was made on the QCBS (Quality Cost-Based Selection) 80:20 method. If someone has a list of bidders and their final scores (technical + financial), then leave a comment below or shoot me a message via the Contact page. I’d like to add it in here for record keeping.
This is the first major contract by Karnataka’s Rail Infrastructure Development Company (K-RIDE) for this project which will feature 4 lines and 64 stations (see detailed info):
- 41.478 km Corridor 1: Sampige Line (KSR Bengaluru – Yelahanka – Devanahalli)
- 24.866 km Corridor 2: Mallige Line (Baiyyappanahalli Terminal – Chikkabanavara)
- 35.520 km Corridor 3: Parijaata Line (Kengeri – Whitefield)
- 46.285 km Corridor 4: Kanaka Line (Heelalige – Rajankute)
K-RIDE invited tenders for the GC contract in April 2021 and again in September 2021 with an estimated cost of Rs. 202.76 crore. They expect the assigned GC to be onboard for 4 years plus 12 months of operations & maintenance (O&M).
Bidding is currently underway for Corridor-2’s 8.027 km elevated viaduct between Benniganahalli and Chikkabanavara. This is the first civil package of the project and technical bids are currently scheduled to open on February 21. The construction of stations en-route will be part of a separate package – see project details.
