J Kumar Infraprojects and Ahluwalia Contracts (India) are the only 2 bidders for the pre-engineered building (PEB) roof and architectural finishing contract at 5 stations of Mumbai Metro’s 23.6 km Line-2B (Yellow Line) connecting DN Nagar – BKC – Mandale.
These 5 elevated stations are located at Diamond Nagar, Shivaji-Chowk, BSNL, Mankhurd and Mandale. Their civil construction contract (Package CA-07) was awarded to NCC Ltd. in April 2019 after several rounds of re-bidding, and the first set of U-girders was launched in January 2020.
Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) had invited bids for this contract (Package CA-158) in early January 2023 with a Rs. 100.30 crore estimate and unknown completion deadline. Technical bids were opened on Thursday.
Scope: Design, supply, fabrication and erection of PEB structural steel works and execution of architectural finishings, plumbing works for 5 elevated stations of ML2B corridor Diamond Garden to Mandale of Mumbai Metro rail project of MMRDA
Both 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.
MMRDA just like Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) splits station civil work and PEB roof-works into 2 packages. Tender notices are pending for similar contracts for 17 stations between DN Nagar and Diamond Nagar.
MMRDA’s bidding focus for Line-2B is now entirely on the system installation side of things, so those notices shouldn’t be too far away. Late last month they received 2 bids for its 25kV OHE electrification system from KEC International and Siemens.
