SURAT (Metro Rail News): Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd. (RVNL) has been given a contract worth Rs. 198.93 crores for the civil construction of the Bhesan Depot (Package DC2) for the 41.93 km Surat Metro Phase 1 project, as per NSE filing.
The 19.26 km Line-2 of the Surat Metro, which will connect Bhesan and Saroli via 18 elevated stations, would be supported by the Bhesan Train Maintenance Depot. The facility will be connected via 10.559 km Package CS5 (Bhesan – Majura Gate) that Ranjit Buildcon – Dilip Buildcon JV won in June 2022.
This is the last contract for civil construction in Surat Metro’s Phase 1. In April 2022, GMRC issued a proposal request with a 20-month deadline.
- Final Contract Value: Rs. 198,93,34,549.77
- Package: DC2
- Tender Notification: GMRC/CONS/DC 02/SURAT/PH-1/2022
The brief Scope of the project includes the Construction of Bhesan Depot cum Workshop, which includes DDC, BCC and associated E&M works under Corridor – C2, Bhesan to Saroli, for Surat Metro Phase – 1, DC-02.
RVNL has now won twice in Phase 1. First, in a joint venture with ISC Projects, they won the contract to build the 22.77 km track for Line-1 in July by submitting the lowest bidder.
RVNL will probably subcontract the depot’s construction work, as witnessed in Indore, where URC Constructions was engaged.
