ITD bags balance civil work contract of Kolkata Metro's Airport Line

Kolkata, India (Urban Transport News): ITD Cementation India Limited emerged as the lowest bidder for completing balance civil work of Line-6 (Airport Line) of Kolkata Metro Rail Project. Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL) in last week opened financial bids of all three bidders and as per result shared, the positions of all bidders are as under:-

  • ITD Cementation India Limited: Rs 292.63 Crore (L1)
  • Afcons Infrastructure Limited: Rs 305.31 Crore (L2)
  • SP Singla Constructions Private Limited: Rs 434.56 Crore (L3)

RVNL had invited tender for the completion of balance civil works of seven stations from Sub CBD-1 to Titumir in New Garia - Airport Line Metro Corridor of Kolkata Metro Line -6 after terminating the contract awarded to IL&FS Engineering and Construction Company Limited in December 2018 citing poor work progress. These seven stations are Sub SBD-1, CBD-1, Keshtopur Canal, Kala Kshetra, Convention Centre, Sub CBD-2, and Titumir.

Earlier in March 2014, RVNL had awarded this contract to IL&FS Engineering for Rs 299.76 crore and given them a timeline to complete the work in 36 months. Earlier, ITD Cementation India Limited had also bagged a contract worth Rs 908.63 crore for construction of the tunnel and two stations on the Subhas Sarobar-Central Underground section of the East-West Metro line of Kolkata Metro Rail project. The 29.87 km long New Garia - Airport Metro Corridor (Line 6) of the Kolkata Metro Rail project will connect New Garia with Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport via two satellite towns Salt Lake and New Town.

A total of 24 elevated stations will be constructed on this line. As per Kolkata Metro Railways, the first phase of train service would run from New Garia to Hemanta Mukherjee (Ruby) stretch. This section is expected to open for the public at the end of 2021.
