NOIDA (Metro Rail News): GR Infraprojects Ltd. (GRIL) was awarded the contract to build a 9.605-kilometre expansion of the Noida Metro’s Aqua Line from Noida Sector-51 to Greater Noida West’s Sector-2 on December 28, 2021.

This is the fourth time of bidding for this segment (Package NGNC-01) of the 14.95 km eastern expansion of the Aqua Line (Sector 51 to Knowledge Park V), which the Uttar Pradesh government approved for construction in December 2019.

The Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) re-invited proposals in May, with a budget of Rs. 563.04 crore and a deadline of 24 months. In June, technical bids were opened, revealing three bidders.

This Contract includes the construction of an Elevated Viaduct and 5 elevated stations viz NOIDA SEC -122, NOIDA SEC-123 GR. NOIDA SEC-4 ECOTECH-12 GR NOIDA SEC-2 (excluding Architectural finishing Works and PEB works of stations) from Chainage 0.00 m to Chainage 9605 m of Noida -Greater Noida Metro Rail Project are some of the brief scopes.

This package consists of 5 elevated stations at Noida Sector 122, Noida Sector 123, Greater Noida Sector 4, Ecotech 12 (Tech Zone) and Greater Noida Sector 2. Although GR Infra’s bid was just 5.32 per cent higher than NMRC’s estimate, a contract should be given in 2022, assuming no unexpected problems arise. However, because NMRC has taken a haphazard approach to create this extension, it may be some time before it happens.

When that happens, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), which serves as the project’s General Consultant (GC) and Project Management Consultant, will help GR Infra (PMC).
