10 Bidders for Jalna – Nanded Expressway’s 6 Construction Contracts

10 civil engineering firms have submitted a total of 23 bids to construct the 179.85 km Jalna – Nanded Expressway project after bids were opened on Thursday.

This 6 lane access-controlled highway project by Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) will have its northern terminal at the 701 km Mumbai – Nagpur Expressway (Samruddhi Mahamarg or ME-2).

The expressway has been designed with a 120 kmph speed limit. It will be developed under 6 packages (JNE-1, JNE-2, JNE-3, JNE-4, JNE-5 & JNE-6) and is expected to reduce the travel time between Nanded and Mumbai to 6 hours from 11 hours.

MSRDC had invited RfQ applications for its civil construction in April 2023 and opened bids in June 2023 to reveal 28 firms had submitted applicatios. 18 of those firms qualified to the next RfP round in December 2023. MSRDC then invited price bids from those 18 firms in January 2024 with a construction deadline of 900 days.

Technical evaluation is not required in this round as that’s what the RfQ round was for. Financial bids will most likely be opened only after the Lok Sabha election’s model code of conduct ends. Stay tuned to see who wins each package!

MSRDC on Thursday also opened bids for 136.80 km Pune Ring Road and 126 km Virar-Alibaug Multi-Modal Corridor projects. Check out each link to see bidder and package information.
