JKIL & ACIL Bid for Mumbai Line-2B’s Station Finishing Work

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.

    Hey tmrg! Wishing you well!
    Hope you know that madurai metro or metro lites feasibility study got over and cmrl has called for dpr study. I thought it will be nice if you add madurai page among the proposed metros in India. The routes are also well defined in dfr.

    Hey TMRG,
    Do you see a future metro line extension for metro line 7 in Mumbai which is currently operating from Dahisar East to Andheri East? Ideally it should be extended across the entire Western express highway atleast till Bandra East BKC.

      Would be nice, but don’t believe MMRDA would pursue it at least for the next 20 years. I suppose their strategy for the southern portion of WEH is to have people use Line-3.

      I’d love to see it connecting Bandra East – Parel (Ambedkar Road) – Byculla – CST to form a central line on town-side.

        I think it completely depends on two things

        1) the response to L3. If the demand is very very high then they may have to consider it as a relief line. Ofcourse that situation will not come from day one but maybe after 10-12 years of complete operations of L3

        2) the status of their ongoing projects. They already have a bulk load under construction and a lot more planned. They will not consider anything new untill they manage to get on top of the existing lot.

        Hey TMRG,
        Do you really see this Metro 2 B line commissioning in Dec 2024 from DN Nagar till National College ( Bandra West) as claimed by MMRDA?

      The south end of Line 7 which is Gundavali is Line 7A which will be extended to Airport and will meet Line 3
