5 firms have submitted bids to supply and install ballastless tracks for Mumbai Metro’s 32.32 km Line-4 and 2.88 km Line-4A (Green Line) connecting Wadala – Kasarvadavali – Gaimukh through 34 elevated stations.
Tracks from this contract (Package CA-161) will be installed at Line 4 & 4A’s 15.77 km northern section between Mulund Fire Station and Gaimukh. A tender notice for Line-4’s southern section (Wadala – Mulund Fire Station) is still pending.
Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) had invited bids for this contract in January 2023 with a Rs. 131.11 crore estimate and 2 year installation deadline. Technical bids were opened on Friday.
- Apurvakriti Infrastructure Pvt Ltd.
- ITD Cementation India Ltd.
- Paras Railtech Pvt. Ltd.
- Rahee Infratech Ltd.
- Texmaco Rail and Engineering Ltd.
Brief Scope: Design, Construction, Manufacturing, Supply, Installation, Testing and Commissioning of Ballastless Trackwork in Mainline from Mulund Fire Station Ch. 18929.611 M to Gaimukh Ch. 34702.272 M including Siding Tracks of Gaimukh Station
The bids have now been sent for technical 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 track-work contractor.
MMRDA is slowly chipping away at Line-4’s system contracts. Back in February, Jindal Steel & Power Ltd. (JSPL) was declared as the lowest bidder to supply 9800 MT of head-hardened rails.
