Afcons Wins Dharamtar Creek Bridge’s Contract Near Mumbai

Afcons Infrastructure was today declared as the lowest bidder for the civil construction of a new 2.04 km bridge between Revas – Karanja over Dharamtar Creek in Maharashtra.

This 4 lane bridge on state highway SH-4 (Revas – Reddi Coastal Highway) in Raigad District plans to cut down the driving distance between Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) and Alibaug from approximately 55 km to 30 km.

The 29.50m wide bridge by Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) will support a design speed of 80 kmph and include a 1.5m wide pedestrian footpath on either side. At Karanja, a 5.13 km long approach road will be built, while at Revas a 1.71 km road will be constructed on stilts.

After the original tender was scraped in May 2023, MSRDC re-invited tenders for its civil construction in December 2023 with a Rs. 2079 crore estimate and 1080 day (2.95 year) completion deadline. Technical bids were opened last week to reveal two bidders – Afcons Infrastructure and Hindustan Construction Company (HCC).

Afcons’ bid of Rs. 2963.97 crore was a staggering 42.56% higher than MSRDC’s Rs. 2079 crore estimate, so unless MSRDC budges and meets Afcons (which I reckon they likely will not), then this will head to a third round of bidding.
