10 Bidders for Haryana Orbital Rail Corridor’s C5 Contract


Ten firms have bid to construct 21.14 km Package C-5 of the 121.7 km Haryana Orbital Rail Corridor (HORC) project after Haryana Rail Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (HRIDC) opened technical bids in January-end.

This section of Haryana’s first semi high-speed rail line will consist of a 3.9 km viaduct adjacent to the Aravalis, just east of tunnel Package C-4 which was won by Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd. (RVNL) in March 2023. Also included in the scope is an at-grade section and the construction of IMT Sohna Station, Silani Station and New Pirthala Station.

The Western Dedicated Freight Corridor (WDFC)’s Dadri – Rewari section will cross over HORC’s Package C-5 (shown in green in the map below).

HRIDC had invited tenders for this package’s construction in November 2023 with a 3 year completion deadline and an undisclosed estimate which I hear might be worth Rs. 1180 crore.

The bids have now been sent for technical bid 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.

Here’s are two schematics via HRIDC’s January 2024 Ralharee newsletter shared by follower Kanishka which shows C5’s profile:
