DRA Wins Raipur – Vizag Expressway’s Package OD-7


Dineshchandra R Agrawal Infracon Pvt. Ltd today emerged as the lowest bidder to construct package OD-7 of the 464 km Raipur – Visakhapatnam Economic Corridor (NH-130CD & EC-15), also known as Raipur – Vizag Expressway.

This new six-lane highway will have a few sections that are access-controlled with a greenfield alignment connecting the states of Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh.

Package OD-7 is just 4 km long and will connect Baraja – Kandili within Odisha near the border with Andra Pradesh, so I’m inclined to believe it has a viaduct or tunnel section.

National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) invited tenders for its construction in August 2021 with a 2 year deadline and Rs. 759.75 crore estimate. Technical bids were opened in December 2021 to reveal 11 bidders.

DRA Infra 586.03
Megha Engineering 661.13
Bekem Infra 661.42
CS Construction 690.00

OD-7’s Scope: Development of Six Lane Baraja Kandili Section of NH-130 CD Road from km 338.500 to km 342.500 under Raipur-Visakhapatnam Economic Corridor in the state of Odisha on Hybrid Annuity Mode
