BANGALORE, INDIA (Metro Rail News): The work on the Namma metro connecting Kempe Gowda International Airport is going to resume in three months. The contract has been given to Hyderabad based NCC-Ltd, formerly known as Nagarjuna Construction Company Limited. According to the official statement by Anjum Parwez, Managing Director, BMRCL, the stretch is going to meet the deadline of 2024.

Parwez stated that the letter of agreement was handed over to NCC ltd. on Wednesday. There is a three-division of the phase 2B line, and all are assigned to the NCC. The contract involves the construction of an elevated line of 38.44 Km from KR Puram to the International Airport. The total cost of the project is 2,200 crores. The opening of tenders got delayed due to the pandemic situation for the last one and a half years. The project got approval from the Union Cabinet in April. The metro project, along with the Outer Ring Road Line, got the total approval of 14,788 Crore. Five companies qualified for the technical bidding round, which started in June. As NCC emerged as the lowest bidder, that’s why financial bid has been offered to NCC. Moreover, still, there is a wait going on for the consent of the Asian Development Bank, which is the funding agency for the project. 

Previously, NCC has done the Civil works for BMRCL to complete the Phase two line from Yelachenhalli to Silk Institute, which was inaugurated on January 15, 2021.
