10 Bidders for Singhpora – Vailoo Tunnel’s Construction Work

10 civil construction companies have submitted bids to construct the 10.3 km Singhpora – Vailoo Tunnel project after National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation (NHIDC) opened technical bids on Wednesday.

This project on NH-244 (old NH-1B) in Jammu and Kashmir will consist of 2 tunnels – a 10.331 km Tube-1 and a 10.363 km Tube-2. Along with the approach roads, this strategic project under Sinthan Pass will be 38.611 km long and drastically shorten the distance between Anantnag – Khellani.

NHIDC invited tenders for its construction in August 2022 with a Rs. 3253.58 crore estimate and 1826 day (5 year) completion deadline.

The bids have now been sent for technical 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.

Besides this project, I’m also tracking the 8 km Shudmahadev – Dranga twin tunnel project shown in the map above. Bids are currently scheduled to be opened on January 6, so stay tuned for a similar post!

Over the past few weeks when I had some down-time, I created a bunch of very basic information pages for important projects. Below are just a few. See more projects on the website’s menu under Misc > Misc Projects.

    I think you should create a separate section for tunnels instead of keeping it in Misc. Lots of tunnels are coming up, it would be nice to see so many 5 km + road tunnel in one place.

      You’re right – deserves its own section! Do you have a list of tunnel projects I should create a page for?
