Amar Infrastructure – PS Constructions JV last Monday was awarded a Rs. 283.67 crore contract to upgrade the 42.5 km Ismailabad – Ambala section of National Highway NH-152 into an expressway.
This 4 lane access-controlled brownfield highway project by National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) in Haryana forms the northern part of the 313 km Ambala – Kotputli Economic Corridor. It will become a natural extension of the 227 km Trans Haryana Expressway (NH-152D) which became operational in 2022 connecting Gangheri – Narnaul.
The upgraded highway will feature grade separated structures (flyovers) and service roads to separate high-speed and local traffic. Its Detailed Project Report (DPR) was prepared by SA Infrastructure Consultants in 2022.
NHAI had invited tenders for its construction contract under Bharatmala Pariyojna (BMP)’s (Lot 4 / Package 1) in early-January 2023 with a 2 year deadline. Technical bids were opened in early March to reveal 9 bidders and financial bids were opened on March 21.
Below I’ve shown only the lowest 5 bidders’ values.
