Structcon Awarded Nagpur Metro Phase 2’s Design Consultant Contract DDC-04

The winner of another Detailed Design Consultant (DDC) contract is now known to me. Back in December 2023, Structcon Designs was awarded a Rs. 24 lakh contract for Package DDC-04 of 43.8 km Nagpur Metro Phase 2 project by Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (Maha-Metro).

This low-value package DDC-04’s scope includes providing design consultancy services for the small 1.7 km long at-grade section of Nagpur Metro Orange Line’s 18.7 km Reach 1A (Khapri – Butibori MIDC ESR). The at-grade section connects chainage 19550 to 21296.917 with two metro stations named Eco Park Station and Metro City Station.

Maha-Metro had invited bids for this consultancy service in October 2023 with an unknown estimate and contract duration of 1 year.

Technical bids were opened in November 2023 to reveal 3 bidders and financial bids were opened in December 2023.

    Everything should not be on competitive only on price. Quality must be decide by Govt qualified Engineerings and Facilities by users.

    I feel India should choose and use the best. And it should decide on feasible and compatible in long run.

    I believe ‘ it is easy to decide in between right and wrong things, but to choose in between two right-things will decide the destiny’.
