This is the fourth time tenders are invited for this work with the previous three cancelled due to a lack of extensive participation in this tender by the construction companies.
The Uttar Pradesh cabinet in December 2019 approved the construction of 14.95 km long extension of Aqua Line from Noida Sector 51 to Knowledge Park V in Greater Noida with nine stations on the route at an estimated cost of INR 2,602 Crore.
The extension corridor is to be built in two phases. The first phase would be between Noida Sector 51 and Greater Noida Sector 2 (9.6 km). There will be five stations in the first phase, they are Noida Sector 122, Noida Sector 123, Greater Noida Sector 4, Eco Tech 12, and Greater Noida Sector 2 for which this tender is reinvited while the second phase would be between Greater Noida Sector 2 and Knowledge Park V (5.8 km) which will have four stations, they are Greater Noida Sector 3, Sector 10, Sector 12 and Knowledge Park V.
Hope this time NMRC received bids from an adequate number of companies as the estimated cost is also increased this time and work finally gets started with awarding of tender and subsequent initiation of civil construction works.
