Ceigall & HG Infra Win Varanasi – Kolkata Expressway’s Contracts

The likely contractors for another 2 sections of the 610.417 km Varanasi – Ranchi – Kolkata Expressway are now known!

Ceigall India Ltd. and HG Infra Engineering Ltd. on Wednesday were declared as the lowest bidders for the expressway’s package 12 and 13’s civil construction in Jharkhand.

This greenfield expressway project by National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will be built at an estimated cost of Rs. 28,500 crore under the Bharatmala Pariyojna (BMP) program.

Its 6 lane alignment will run parallel to National Highway NH-19 (old NH-2) and link Varanasi Ring Road in Uttar Pradesh’s Barhuli village to NH-16 near Uluberia in West Bengal’s Howrah District via Bihar and Jharkhand.

NHAI had began inviting tenders (bids) for construction contracts under Hybrid Annuity Mode (HAM) in November 2022 with 2 year deadlines. Technical bids were opened earlier this month to reveal 11 firms had submitted bids for packages 11, 12 & 13.
