BANGLORE (Metro Rail News): Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL) on Monday invited tenders (bids) to appoint a Project Management Consultant (PMC) for the civil construction works of Bangalore Metro’s 55 km Line-5 (Blue Line) which is going to connect Silkboard – KR Puram – Bengaluru International Airport through 30 stations on the Outer Ring Road and NH-44. BMRCL has so far utilized their in-house project management team for the 73.92 km Phase 2 project’s construction and has not appointed General Consultants either.

The project with Tender No: BMRCL/Phase-2A & 2B/Via & Stns /PMC/2020/72 has been released for the Civil construction works of Metro Corridor from Central Silk Board Junction to Kempegowda International Airport of Bengaluru Metro Rail Project Phase 2A & 2B.

- Date & time of submission: 19.10.2020 at 17.30 Hrs
