MEIL Wins Amas – Darbhanga Expressway’s Construction Work

Megha Engineering and Infrastructures Ltd. today emerged as the lowest bidder to construct Packages 1 & 2 of the 230 km Amas – Darbhanga Expressway (NH-119D) after the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) opened financial bids.

This 4 lane access-controlled highway by National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will be the first expressway in Bihar state. It will run in north-south orientation to link the outskirts of Aurangabad – Gaya – Patna – Darbhanga, and use portions of the under construction Patna Outer Ring Road and 9.75 km Kachchi Dargah – Bidupur Bridge projects.

55.002 km Package 1 will connect Amas (Km 0.0 on NH-02) with Shivrampur (Km. 55.002), while 54.322 km Package 2 connects Shivrampur with Ramnagar (Km. 109.324) in South Bihar.

NHAI invited tenders for their construction in October 2021 with a 2 year deadline and technical bids were opened in February to reveal 4 bidders had submitted a total of 7 bids.
