3 Bidders for Mumbai Metro Line-12’s Construction Contract CA-240


Three firms have submitted bids for the civil construction work of Mumbai Metro’s Line-12 (Orange Line) which will connect Kalyan – Dombivali – Amandoot (Taloja) after Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) opened technical bids today.

Mumbai Metro’s Line-12 with 19 elevated stations will be built as a 22.17 km long southern elevated extension of the partially under construction 23.53 km Line-5 (Thane – Bhiwandi – Kalyan) at an estimated cost of Rs 4,132 crore.

MMRDA had originally invited bids for its construction in February 2023 through 2 civil packages (CA-185 and CA-186) with 17 stations. They received 19 bids in May from 11 bidders, and cancelled the tendering process in June due to a significant change in scope.

They re-invited bids via Package CA-240 in December 2023 with a Rs. 1877.88 crore estimate and 30 month deadline. The contract’s scope now includes 2 additional stations named Kalyan and APMC Kalyan which were earlier planned to be built as part of Line-5.

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 contractor.

If and when construction begins, Mumbai’s package CA-240 at 22.17 km will become the longest EPC package in India’s metro construction history. The current longest is Bangalore Metro Phase 2B’s 15 km Package 3 which is under construction by NCC.
