6 Bidders for Revas – Karanja Bridge’s Work Near Mumbai
6 firms have submitted bids for the civil construction of a new 2.04 km bridge between Revas – Karanja over Dharamtar Creek after Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) opened technical bids today.
This 4 lane bridge on SH-4 (Revas – Reddi Coastal Highway) in Raigad District will cut down the driving distance between Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) and Alibaug from approximately 55 km to 30 km.
The 29.50m wide bridge will support a design speed of 80 kmph and include a 1.5m wide footpath on either side. At Karanja, a 5.13 km long approach road will be built while at Revas a 1.71 km road will be constructed on stilts.
MSRDC had invited tenders for its civil construction in October 2022 with a Rs. 897.68 crore estimate and 1080 day (2.95 year) completion deadline.
