10 firms / consortia have submitted bids to Gujarat Metro Rail Corporation (GMRC) for the construction of Ahmedabad Metro Phase 2 project’s 7.553 km Sector-1 – Mahatma Mandir section in Gandhinagar.
This is the 3rd and final section of this 28.254 km phase which will see Ahmedabad’s north-south Red Line getting extended by 22.838 km from Motera Stadium to Mahatma Mandir via 20 new stations with a 5.416 km spur from GNLU to GIFT City which includes 2 new stations.
GMRC invited tenders for its civil construction contract in February 2022 with a Rs. 610 crore estimate. Its completion period remains unknown to me but is likely to be 30 months looking at packages C1 and C2.

Brief Scope: Construction of 7.553 kms elevated viaduct and 7 nos. of stations (incl. E&M, Architectural Finishing, Roofing, Plumbing, Signage, etc.) from Sector-1 to Mahatma Mandir (ch. 31945.443m to 39498.302m, Package C3) in connection with Ahmedabad Metro Rail Project, Phase-2
This section will consist of 7 elevated stations at Sachivalaya, Akshardham, Juna Sachivalaya, Sector-16, Sector-24 and Mahatma Mandir.
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.
This section’s design was prepared by SYSTRA MVA Consulting (India) as the DDC and its construction will be financed by Agence Française de Développement (AFD) which I expect will begin in Q4 2022.
The first 2 sections of Phase 2 are well under construction with both contractors commencing U-girder launching activity in Q4 2021:
|C1: Motera to GNLU (8.124 km) and GNLU to GIFT City (5.420 km) with 10 stations||Afcons Infrastructure|
|C2: GNLU to Gandhinagar Sector-1 (6.478 km) with 5 stations||Ranjit Buildcon|
