Nagpur (Metro Rail News): On Thursday, Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (Maha-Metro) declared that  Rahee Infratech Ltd. has emerged as the lowest bidder for Package T-01, which involves the supply and installation of ballasted tracks for the Nagpur Metro Phase 2 project.

Package T-01 entails the track work within the 1.746 km at-grade section of Nagpur Metro Orange Line’s 18.7 km Reach 1A, which links Khapri to Butibori MIDC ESR. This section features two metro stations: Eco Park Station and Metro City Station.

Maha-Metro had called for bids for this contract in March 2024, with an estimated cost of Rs. 7.96 crore and a deadline of 150 days. In April, the technical bids were opened, revealing two bidders: Rahee Infratech and NMC Industries.

Rahee Infratech submitted a bid of Rs. 9.42 crore, which was 18.34% higher than MahaMetro’s estimate of Rs. 7.96 crore. Although the difference of Rs. 1.46 crore may seem relatively small, it does not align perfectly with the anticipated contract value. Negotiations will be necessary to reach a mutually beneficial agreement.

Scope of work

The scope of work includes the design, supply, installation, testing, and commissioning of the ballasted track in the at-grade section of Reach 1A of NMRP Phase-2. This encompasses the supply of 1080 Grade HH Rails, track fastenings, 1 in 9 R300 ballasted turnout, and various other miscellaneous works.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of the 43.8 km Nagpur Metro Phase 2 project on December 11, 2022. In April 2023, the Maharashtra government’s cabinet approved the project, affirming a revised estimated cost of 6708 crore. 

The project’s objective is to extend the two existing corridors constructed in Phase 1 to Kanhan in the northern direction, Butibori MIDC in the southern direction, Transport Nagar (Kapsi) in the eastern direction, and Hingna in the western direction. It features a 1.2 km at-grade section with 2 stations and 42.6 km elevated sections with 30 stations.
