Twelve civil engineering firms in June submitted bids to construct Package BBC-03 of Bhubaneswar Metro’s Phase 1 project which will connect Trisulia Square – Biju Patnaik Airport via 20 elevated stations.

7.122 km long Package BBC-03 is located on the southern-end of 26 km Line-1 and will connect Capital Hospital to Acharya Vihar Square via 6 elevated stations at Capital Hospital, Bapuji Nagar, Bhubaneswar Railway Station, Ram Mandir Square, Vani Vihar and Acharya Vihar Square.

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had invited bids for its construction in March 2024 with a Rs. 630.65 crore estimate and 36 month deadline. Technical bids were opened on June 19.

All stations’ exact location has been marked out on Google Maps over here. Biju Patnaik Airport Metro Station and the viaduct leading up to it will be constructed as part of a separate package after design approval from the Airports Authority of India (AAI).

The bids have since mid-June been undergoing evaluation which can take a couple months to complete. When completed, the financial bids of the technically qualified bidders will be opened to reveal who’s the lowest bidder and most likely contractor.

Package BBC-03’s construction will be funded entirely by the Government of Odisha and other appropriate means of Bhubaneswar Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL). Interestingly, the package’s tender documents mentioned this is “Non-JICA funded work” which indicates Japan International Cooperation Agency is in advanced discussions with BMRCL for providing a loan to fund a part of the project – most likely the systems component comprising of rolling stock, signaling, telecommunication etc.

Technical bids for packages BBC-04 & BBC-05 (Acharya Square – KIIT Square – Phulapokhari) were also opened on June 19. I’ll write a post when I hear about their bidders.
