L&T Wins Bhopal Metro’s Track Work Contract BH07

Larsen & Toubro on Saturday was declared as the lowest bidder to supply and install standard gauge tracks for Bhopal Metro Phase 1’s underground, elevated and Subhash Nagar Depot.

Madhya Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (MPMRCL) had invited tenders for this contract (Package BH-07) financed by European Investment Bank (EIB) in February with a 1274 day (3.49 year) deadline and unknown estimate.

Technical bids were opened in July to reveal 4 bidders. RVNL and VNC were disqualified as their bids were not compliant with the tender’s conditions.

MPMRCL’s estimate is unknown to me, so I can’t provide an assessment on the chance of a LOA getting issued to L&T.

This is the 4th and final track-related contract for Bhopal’s 27.87 km Phase 1 project. The previous 3 have been clubbed together with Indore Metro’s Phase 1.
