S&P Infrastructure Developers – Skylark Infra Engineering JV on Tuesday emerged as the lowest bidder to construct 20.9 km Phase 3 Package 2 of the 280.8 km Bangalore Satellite Town Ring Road (NH-948A).

It is being built in 3 parallel phases and involves construction of NH-948A and realignment of existing NH-648 (old NH-207). Phase 3’s Package 2 will connect Hoskote with the Karnataka – Tamil Nadu Border, just east of the city.
National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) invited tenders for this package’s construction in December 2021 with a Rs. 530.89 crore estimate, 2 year deadline and 5 year maintenance period. Technical bids were opened in February to reveal 16 bidders.
