MEIL Wins Mancherial – Warangal Expressway’s Contracts in Telangana

Besides getting awarded Mumbai – Ahmedabad Bullet Train Package C1’s Rs. 3680.96 crore contract in a JV with HCC, Megha Engineering & Infrastructures Ltd. (MEIL) had more reason to cheer this week.

The firm on Wednesday was declared as the lowest bidder for all 3 civil of the 405 km Nagpur – Vijayawada Economic Corridor’s 112 km Mancherial – Warangal Expressway in Telangana.

This new 4 lane access-controlled highway by National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will have a mix of greenfield and brownfield-upgraded sections with an alignment passing by Adilabad, Mancherial, Warangal and Khammam.

Construction of its Mancherial – Warangal greenfield corridor connecting connecting Narva, Puttapaka, Pangidipalle and Oorugonda will be carried out under the Bharatmala Pariyojana Phase-I program (Lot-4/Package-7) with a goal to improve the efficiency of freight movement and boost exports via port connectivity.

NHAI had invited tenders for construction by hybrid annuity model (HAM) in November 2022 with a 2 year deadline. Technical bids were opened in February 2023 to reveal 10 firms had submitted 24 bids.

Below I’ve shown only the lowest 5 bidders’ values for each package.

HG Infra Engineering Ltd. (HGIEL952.11
Mancherial – Warangal Expressway’s route – via the government’s EC site

The lowest bids in each case were well below NHAI’s estimates, so I expect NHAI to award contracts in the coming weeks without a long financial evaluation period.

While we’re on the topic of Nagpur – Vijayawada Economic Corridor, NHAI on Tuesday received 34 bids from 13 firms for its 108.24 km Warangal – Khammam section and 19 bids from 9 firms for its 89.42 km Khammam – Vijayawada section.

      Hi, map shown above is the only one I’ve been able to locate. It’s on the govt’s environment clearance website:

      Search for a proposal using the keyword ‘Mancherial’, then visit the EC document prepared by NHAI’s EIA consultant
