Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL) today invited tenders to appoint a consultant to create a Detailed Project Report for Bangalore Metro’s Phase 3‘s 37 km Hebbal – Sarjapur metro line.
This exciting development comes barely weeks after Karnataka’s Chief Minister announced the re-addition of the line at an estimated cost of Rs. 15,000 crore. The line will cut through the city’s core and connect Carmeleram, Agara, Koramangala, Dairy Circle, Central College and Armane Nagar.
BMRCL has barred firms from bidding in a consortium / JV.
RFP: BMRCL/Phase-3/DPR (Sarjapura to Hebbala)/Consultancy/2022/88
- Estimate: Not Disclosed
- Completion Period: 8 months
- Bid Submission End Date: 17/05/2022 at 15:00
- Technical Bid Opening Date: 17/05/2022 at 15:30
Scope: Preparation of Detailed Project Report (DPR) for Metro Rail Corridor of length 37 km connecting Sarjapura to Hebbala through Agara, Koramangala and Dairy Circle for Bangalore Metro Rail Project, Phase-3
The DPR will provide a baseline of the line’s length, underground & elevated route composition, number of stations, their locations, depot, coach requirement, ridership projection, operational game plan, total cost etc.
If things go according to the tender notice’s prescribed schedule, then we should see a consultant getting appointed in Q3 (July – October) and perhaps a glimpse of the DPR’s first draft, if BMRCL chooses to share, in Q2 2023 (April – June).
