APCO Wins Delhi – Katra Expressway’s Package 17 in J&K

APCO Infratech on Friday was declared as the lowest bidder to construct 28.92 km Package 17 of the roughly 650 km Delhi – Amritsar – Katra (DAK) Expressway after National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) opened financial bids.

This 4 lane (expandable to 8 lane) greenfield project’s Phase 1 consists of 12 packages for the 397.71 km Delhi – Gurdaspur section and 3 packages for the 99 km Nakodar – Amritsar spur.

Package 17 in Jammu & Kashmir is part of Phase 2 connecting Gurdaspur – Pathankot – Jammu – Katra. It consists of 2 disjointed parts – a 13.3 km brownfield section of NH-44 which will be upgraded between Kunjwani and Sidhra and a 15.62 km greenfield section between Domel and Katra.

Its Detailed Project Report (DPR) was prepared by Feedback Infra. NHAI invited bids for its construction in January 2022 under the Hybrid Annuity Model (HAM) model with a Rs. 1557.51 crore estimate and 2 year deadline. Technical bids were opened in June to reveal 8 bidders.
