New Delhi, India (Urban Transport News): The National Capital Region Transport Corporation Limited (NCRTC) issued the letter of acceptance (LoA) to L&T Infrastructure Engineering Limited (LIEL) of the contract value of Rs 6.75 crore for providing consultancy services for the design of three RRTS stations including viaducts of Delhi-SNB RRTS corridor of NCRTC on February 21, 2020.
The detailed scope of work includes providing civil, architectural and E&M works for the design of three elevated stations viz. Udyog Vihar, Sector-17 and Rajeev Chowk and elevated viaduct between IDPL Complex Ramp (Gurugram) to Rajiv Chowk Ramp for Delhi-Gurugram-SNB RRTS corridor.
The tender was floated on 24th August 2019 vide reference no. DA/DD/COR-OF/011 and the technical bid was opened on 19th November 2019. After the opening of financial bids on 12th February 2020, L&T Infrastructure Engineering Limited (LIEL) has emerged as the lowest bidder (L1). The 106 km long Delhi-SNB RRTS corridor will be elevated for about 71 km (11 stations), the remaining 35 km (5 stations) will be constructed underground, mostly in Delhi & Gurugram.
This corridor will converge with other RRTS corridors in Sarai Kale Khan and will be interoperable, facilitating commuters’ movement from one corridor to another without the hassle of changing trains. The Delhi-Gurugram-SNB RRTS corridor will strengthen the regional transport infrastructure by providing a fast, safe, comfortable and reliable mobility option to the residents of Delhi, Gurugram, Rewari, Manesar, Daruheda, Bawal, and nearby areas.
The fast commuting connecting Delhi to nearby regions will be immensely beneficial in decongesting Delhi and its roads, providing citizens the choice to live & work in different regional nodes to lead a better quality of life.
The corridor is planned to be constructed in about 5 years’ time excluding 1 year of pre-construction activities at a base construction cost of Rs 24,975 crores, funded by Government of India (20%), concerned State Governments (20%) and bilateral/multilateral funding agencies (60%). Once constructed, the corridor is expected to bring down the travel time between SKK-SNB in less than 70 minutes (106 km). The daily ridership on this corridor is estimated to be 8.5 Lakhs in 2025.
