Hyderabad Metro Phase 3: Aarvee & Systra Win DPR Consultant Work


Aarvee Associates and Systra MVA Consulting India have been declared as the preferred bidders for preparing 4 Detailed Project Reports (DPR) of the 278 km Hyderabad Metro Phase 3 project.

Hyderabad Metro’s Phase 3 by Hyderabad Airport Metro Ltd. (HAML) will be executed in 2 parts – 142 km Part A with 68 stations and 136 km Part B on Hyderabad’s Outer Ring Road with 16 stations.

HAML had invited bids for the DPR’s preparation through 4 packages in mid-August 2023 and received bids from 5 firms. Aarvee placed the highest technical score and lowest financial bid. Per the tender conditions, a firm could only win 2 contracts, so the next highest technical scorer (Systra) was invited to match Aarvee’s financial bid.

I hear HAML plans to issue Letter of Awards (LoAs) on September 6.

Per HAML’s MD, the selected firms will have to first submit Preliminary Project Reports (PPRs) in 2 months duly carrying out traffic surveys, travel demand forecasting, ridership estimates, alternative options analysis etc., and recommend suitable modes of public transport.

They will next prepare DPRs in 3 months with details of alignment, viaduct/at grade/underground options, stations & depots, electric traction, signaling & train communication, coaches, environment/social impact assessment, transit oriented development, last mile connectivity, cost estimates, fare structure, financial analysis, project implementation plan, etc.

I’m currently out traveling and will update this post with more information and my thoughts soon, so do check back! I do find it strange though that the project is being executed/managed by Hyderabad Airport Metro Ltd. (HAML) and not by Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMLR).
