Afcons – SAM Wins Agra Metro’s Underground Contract AGCC-02

March 14, 2022 Update: Contract (LOA) has been awarded – see details

February 14, 2022 Original Post: Besides winning in Kanpur, Afcons Infrastructure – Sam India JV today also emerged as the lowest bidder to construct Agra Metro Phase 1’s underground section (AGCC02) between RBS College Ramp and Taj Mahal Ramp.

This 7.93 km civil package from chainage 3630.000 to 11564.485 consists of twin tunnels connecting 7 stations at Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Jama Masjid, SN Medical College, Agra College, Raja ki Mandi and RBS College.

Per Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC)’s tender documents, the assigned contractor will be required to deploy four tunnel boring machines (TBMs).

UPMRC invited bids for this package in August 2021 with a Rs. 2200 crore estimate and 4 year completion deadline. Technical bids were opened in November 2021 to reveal 7 bidders. During technical bid evaluation, DRA – Evrascon JV was disqualified.

Financial Bid Values:

FirmBid (Rs. Crore)
Afcons Infra – SAM India JV1819.79
JMC Projects – CAI JV Ltd.1939.30
ITD Cementation India2142.82
J Kumar Infra – NCC JV2249.27
Larsen & Toubro (L&T)2550.36
Gulermak Agir Sanayi Insaat ve Taahh. A.S.2685.25

Package: AGCC-02

Brief Scope: Design and Construction of Tunnel from start of underground ramp (near Fatehabad Road Metro station) to end of ramp after RBS college Metro station including seven underground metro stations (viz. Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Jama Masjid, S.N. Medical college, Agra college, Raja ki Mandi and RBS college) including Architectural finishes, E&M, TVS, ECS etc. on Corridor-1 of Agra MRTS Project at Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India.

This contract will be financed by the European Investment Bank (EIB) through a 480 million Euro loan.

Afcons – Sam’s bid of Rs. 1819.79 crore was well below UPMRC’s estimate (Rs. 2200 crore), so a contract should be awarded in the coming weeks without a long financial evaluation period.

I expect construction to likely start first on the Taj Mahal – Jama Masjid section this summer, which along with Sam India’s 4 km elevated AGCC-01 on Fatehabad Road forms a part of Agra Metro’s 7 km Priority Section.

All stations’ exact locations have been marked on the map located here. Jama Masjid and Agra Fort stations are just 631 meters apart – the shortest distance between any 2 stations.
