NEW DELHI, INDIA (Metro Rail News): At the end of October this year, National High-Speed Rail Corporation Ltd. (NHSRCL) has invited bids to build the 20.378 KMs Package C-2 for the 508.17 KMs Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail (MAHSR) / Bullet Train project.
Package C2 of the main road between (east-end of Bandra-Kurla Complex Station) and Shilphata will be entirely below and contains approximately 3 km “underwater” tunnels under Thane Creek. Therefore, the designated contractor will be required to use at least three large TBMs with a diameter of approximately 14.5 meters.
The NHSRCL has initially invited bids for this package in 2019 with a clause that requires a Japanese contractor to be a key partner in the event of a partnership. Unfortunately, that round got zero bids. As a result, the NHSRCL standard is unknown and will be added as it becomes available.
Package No.: MAHSR-C-2
Project’s Scope: Construction of Tunnelling Works including Testing and Commissioning for Double Line High-Speed Railway using (TBM) and New Austrian Tunneling Method (NATM) between Mumbai Underground Station at Bandra-Kurla Complex and Shilphata.
