 PANCHKULA (Metro Rail News): Cengrs Goetechnica has recently been awarded a contract worth Rs. 53.90 lakh for conducting geotechnical soil investigation for a new 28.50 km elevated metro line in Gurugram (Gurgaon), linking HUDA Millennium City Centre with DLF Cybercity.

The approval for this entirely elevated line, encompassing 27 stations across new and old Gurugram, was granted by the Indian Government’s Union Cabinet in June 2023. Subsequently, Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation Limited (HMRTC) initiated bids for its inaugural geotechnical contracts in December 2023, adhering to a 112-day deadline.

The scope of this contract entails investigating the soil profile along a 12.76 km stretch, spanning from Millennium City Centre to Sector 9, as outlined in the Detailed Project Report (DPR) prepared by RITES. The findings will be integrated into the civil construction tender documents, aiding infrastructure firms in making informed financial bids and selecting suitable machinery, methods, and technology for construction.

Brief Scope: Geotechnical Investigation for the 12.76 km segment with 13 Stations from Millennium City Centre to Sector 9 (inclusive) of the Elevated Corridor (28.5 km) from Millennium City Centre to Cyber City (26.65 km) with a spur (1.85 km) to Sector 101 Gurugram.

Reports indicate that the contract signing ceremony took place today.

The project’s 26.65 km main-line will establish connectivity between HUDA City Centre and Cybercity through 26 stations, while a 1.85 km spur will link Basai Village to Dwarka Expressway, featuring 1 station to facilitate access to the depot.

Meanwhile, the bidding process is underway for the third time to appoint the line’s Detailed Design Consultant (DDC). Initially, HMRTC received 1 bid, followed by 3 bids in the second round. With the current technical bid opening scheduled for March 7, the likelihood of commencing construction in 2024 appears slim, considering the time required for detailed designs and the bidding process for civil construction.
