SP Singla Constructions (SPSCL) was today declared as the lowest bidder to construct a new 2.04 km bridge between Revas – Karanja over Dharamtar Creek by Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC).
This 4 lane bridge on SH-4 (Revas – Reddi Coastal Highway) in Raigad District will cut down the driving distance between Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) and Alibaug from approximately 55 km to 30 km.
The 29.50m wide bridge will support a design speed of 80 kmph and include a 1.5m wide footpath on either side. At Karanja, a 5.13 km long approach road will be built while at Revas a 1.71 km road will be constructed on stilts.
MSRDC had invited tenders for its civil construction in October 2022 with a Rs. 897.68 crore estimate and 1080 day (2.95 year) completion deadline. Technical bids were opened in January to reveal 6 bidders.

MSRDC’s Brief Scope: Construction of Four lanes Major Bridge across Dharamtar Creek connecting Revas to Karanja on Revas Reddi Coastal Highway MSH04 District Raigad
SP Singla’s bid was 11.13% below MSRDC’s estimate, so a contract should be awarded in the coming weeks without a long financial bid evaluation period.
They’ve built and are currently building a bunch of bridges around the country. The one I’m most excited about is the 2.32 km long Okha – Beyt Dwarka Signature Bridge in Gujarat – see project details and design here.
