Afcons & HCC Bid for Dharamtar Creek Bridge’s Contract Near Mumbai


Afcons Infrastructure (AIL) and Hindustan Construction Company (HCC) are the only two bidders for the civil construction of a new 2.04 km bridge between Revas – Karanja over Dharamtar Creek after Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) opened technical bids on Thursday.

This 4 lane bridge on state highway SH-4 (Revas – Reddi Coastal Highway) in Raigad District plans to cut down the driving distance between Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) and Alibaug from approximately 55 km to 30 km.

The 29.50m wide bridge will support a design speed of 80 kmph and include a 1.5m wide pedestrian footpath on either side. At Karanja, a 5.13 km long approach road will be built, while at Revas a 1.71 km road will be constructed on stilts.

This is a contract retender. SP Singla Constructions (SPSCL) emerged as the lowest bidder for its work in February 2023, but the tender was scrapped in May 2023 despite SPSCL qualifying through the technical round and their financial bid being 11.13% below MSRDC’s estimate.

MSRDC re-invited tenders for its civil construction in December 2023 with a 1080 day (2.95 year) completion deadline.

MSRDC’s Brief Scope: Construction of four lane bridge across Dharamtar Creek with approaches connecting Ravas to Karanja on Revas Redi Coastal Highway in Raigad District in the State of Maharashtra on EPC Mode
