Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) today invited tenders to appoint a General Consultant (GC) for civil & system works of Mumbai Metro‘s 9.20 km Line-10 (Gaimukh – Shivaji Chowk) and 20.7 km Line-12 (Kalyan – Taloja).
The appointment of a dedicated General Consultant to assist MMRDA is expected to pave the way for both lines’ speedy implementation through assistance in design, supervision, safety, quality control and contract management.
MMRDA had originally invited GC bids in July 2020 from global engineering and consultancy firms for just civil work. AECOM emerged as the preferred bidder in December 2020, but a contract wasn’t awarded for reasons unknown to me. The new tender’s scope includes both civil and system integration work.
