Hillways – GRTC JV Wins Kanpur Ring Road Package 3’s Contract


Hillways Construction Company – Gour Road Tar Coat JV on Monday was declared as the lowest bidder for the civil construction work of 93.2 km Kanpur Outer Ring Road project’s Package 3.

This 6 lane greenfield expressway by National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will link Sachendi, Ramaipur, Rooma, Chakeri Airport, Trans Ganga City and Mandhana at an estimated cost of Rs. 5,182 crore. It will also be connected to the under construction Lucknow – Kanpur Expressway near Amarsus village.

18.9 km long Package 3 lies in eastern Kanpur and includes 2 parts: (1) 17.45 km section connecting Ata village (Ch. 51.200) – Khudhgaon (Ch.68.650) with a 1.2 km long bridge over Ganga River, and (2) a 1.45 km Airport Link Road to Chakeri Airport.

NHAI had invited tenders for its construction in January 2023 with a Rs. 845.23 crore estimate and 900 day (2.46 year) deadline. Technical bids were opened on September 13 to reveal 12 bidders.

Hillways – GRTC JV and Ceigall were initially disqualified in the technical round as they failed to meet the tender’s conditions. I suspect they questioned their disqualification, presented evidence, and got admitted.

Hillways – GRTC JV’s bid of 612.50 crore was substantially lower than NHAI’s 845.23 crore estimate, so a contract should be awarded in the coming months.
