13 Bidders for Surat – Chennai Expressway’s Package 4 in Karnataka

13 construction firms have submitted bid to construct 40.6 km Package 4 of the Solapur – Kurnool – Chennai Economic Corridor (NH-150C), which forms the southern section of what’s known as Surat – Chennai Expressway.

This new 1271 km six-lane partially access-controlled highway by National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will have a mix of greenfield and brownfield-upgraded sections with an alignment passing by Nasik, Ahmednagar, Solapur, Kalaburgi, Kurnool, Kadappa & Tirupati to link Gujarat, Maharashtra, Telangana and Tamil Nadu.

Karnataka section’s Package 4 will connect Baswantpur and Singnodi on the border with Telangana. NHAI invited tenders for its construction by hybrid annuity model (HAM) in December 2021 with a 2.5 year deadline and Rs. 1169.22 crore estimate.

Package 4’s Brief Scope: Development of 6 lane Access Controlled Greenfield Highway from Km 162.500 to Km 203.100 Baswantpur to Singnodi section of NH 150C (Pkg 4 of Akkalkot KNT or TS Border) on HAM under Bharatmala Pariyojna

Representational Only: the economic corridor will link Surat’s proposed Ring Road and Chennai Peripheral Ring Road

The bids have now been sent for technical bid evaluation which can take a couple months to complete. When that is done, the financial bids of the technically qualified bidders will be opened to reveal who’s the lowest bidder and most likely contractor.

A tender notice for Package 1 is still pending for the Akkalkot, Maharashtra to MH/KA Border at Badadal section. Last month, NHAI received 32 bids from 17 firms for 136.5 km packages 2 & 3 connecting Badadal – Maradgi S. Andola – Baswantpur (see details here).

In case you missed it, I created 3 new information pages for this project with a list of all tenders and their status – check them out:
