3 Bidders for Nagpur – Goa Expressway’s DPR Consultant


3 firms have submitted bids to prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the construction of the 760 km Nagpur – Goa Expressway after Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) opened technical bids today.

This greenfield access-controlled highway will connect Pavnar (near Wardha) and Patradevi (Pernem Taluk). It’s been nicknamed Shaktipeeth Expressway as it’ll provide access to pilgrimage sites in Vidarbha – Marathwada – Western Maharashtra – Goa.

The scope of the contract also includes preparing a feasibility study and providing MSRDC with assistance in land acquisition.

MSRDC invited tenders for this contract in October 2022 with a 540 day (1.5 year) completion deadline and an unknown estimate.

The bids have now been sent for technical bid evaluation which can take a couple months to complete. When that is done, the financial bids of the technically qualified bidders will be opened to reveal who’s the lowest bidder and most likely consultant.

Nagpur – Goa Expressway will be connected to the partly operational 701 km Samruddhi Mahamarg (Mumbai – Nagpur Expressway) in Wardha, just south of Nagpur. It’s expected to reduce travel time between Nagpur and Goa to about 7 hours from the current 21 hour journey.

Back in December, I setup a basic information page for this project here where I’ll be tracking all contracts / tenders.
