SP Singla Wins Delhi Amritsar Expressway Spur-1’s Work

SP Singla Constructions (SPSCPL) on Tuesday emerged as the lowest bidder to construct Package Spur-I of the roughly 650 km Delhi – Amritsar – Katra (DAK) Expressway after National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) opened financial bids.

This 4-lane greenfield project starts at KMP Expressway north-west of Delhi, and will be expandable to 8 lanes with provision of service roads in the future. Phase 1 involves the construction of a 397.7 km greenfield expressway between Delhi – Ludhiana – Gurdaspur and a 99 km spur connecting Nakodar – Amritsar.

40.90 km Package Spur-I connects Nakodar interchange with Dhunda village, south of the historic Goindwal Sahib. It includes an approximately 700 meter cable-stayed bridge over Beas River connecting Kapurthala and Tarn Taran districts.

NHAI had invited bids for this package in June 2021 with a Rs. 1,413.27 crore estimate, 3 year construction deadline and 10 year maintenance period. Technical bids were opened in January 2022 to reveal 6 bidders.

Financial Bid Values:

FirmBid (Rs. crore)
SP Singla Constructions Ltd.973.77
Ceigall – Evrascon JV1286
GR Infraprojects – RVNL JV1477.27
Larsen & Toubro Ltd.1576
Tata Projects – Gulermak JV1646
Ashoka Buildcon1692

NHAI’s Brief Scope: Construction 4 lane Greenfield Amritsar connectivity of Amritsar with Delhi-Amritsar-Katra Exp. from Jun. with Kapurthala-Sultanpur Lodhi road (NH-703A) Isharwal village ch.24.000 to MDR Jun. at ch.40.900 Dhunda Village on EPC mode under BMP in Punjab

Expressway’s route within Punjab via Feedback Infra’s EIA Report ; Spur-1 (in blue) connects Nakodar at Km 306.00 with Beas River

SP Singla’s bid of 973.77 was way below NHAI’s Rs. 1,413.27 crore estimate, so a contract should be awarded without a long financial bid evaluation period.

DAK Expressway project’s greenfield section consists of 15 packages – 12 on the 397 km Delhi – Gurdaspur section and 3 on the 99 km Nakodar-Amritsar spur. 14 of those have been awarded and only this package (Spur-1)’s award is pending – see a list of all packages and contractors here.
