GMR bags biggest highway deal thus far in India
GMR Infrastructure haswon a Rs5,700 crore national highway project running from Kishangarh in Rajasthan through Udaipur to Ahmedabad, according to an official of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI).
This is the single-biggest highway project so far in the country, both in terms of value and length.
The stretch is 555 km-long. This is also the first of the nine planned mega highways. Mega highways are those with a length of over 500 km or costing Rs5,000 crore or more.
The official, requesting anonymity, said GMR offered a negative grant of Rs636 crore to win the toll-based project.
“The negative grant committed by the developer is more than double of the government estimate. That clearly shows the appetite among the private sector for highway projects,” he added. The finance ministry had earlier estimated that the winning bidder may have to shell out a premium of Rs300 crore to bag the project. The concession period in the project is of 26 years.
Negative grant is the money a bidder offers to NHAI to win a contract because it finds potential revenues that encouraging. In case of projects which are otherwise not viable, the NHAI offers up to 40% of the total project cost as viability gap funding.
The second most-preferred bidder for the Kishangarh-Ahmedabad project was a consortium led by GVK Power & Infrastructure, which offered a premium of Rs516 crore. The gap between the prices quoted by the L1 (or the most preferred) and L2 bidders has been widening in recent months owing to increasing competition. Some peg the number of players bidding for such projects at 35-40.
The largest project NHAI awarded before this one was the Rs3,600 crore Ahmedabad-Vadodara section of National Highway-8.
GMR officials confirmed the company has emerged L1 bidder for the project but wouldn’t comment till it received the letter of award (LoA) from NHAI.
GMR has six operational highways and three under development. The company’s scrip closed 1.83% higher at Rs30.65 on the BSE.
NHAI on Friday also awarded the 225 km-long Jabalpur-Katni-Rewa project to Soma Tollway. IL&FS Transportation Networks was the L2 bidder for the Rs1,900 crore highway in Madhya Pradesh.

Union highways ministry, Planning Commission fast-tracking proposal for Delhi-Jaipur expressway (http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/news-by-industry/transportation/shipping-/-transport/union-highways-ministry-planning-commission-fast-tracking-proposal-for-delhi-jaipur-expressway/articleshow/8288277.cms)
NEW DELHI: Traffic woes on the Delhi- Jaipur highway could end sooner than expected. The Union highways ministry and Planning Commission are fast-tracking a proposal to construct a new 261km expressway linking the two cities that will take the load off the existing road.
Though road transport and highways minister C P Joshi had last month announced a plan to build two new high-speed links from the capital to Jaipur and Chandigarh, the Pink City stretch has been prioritized. This new alignment road will be 4 to 6-laned and is estimated to cost Rs 10,000 crore,.
As per the tender document, the expressway must connect with the Manesar-Bawal, Kushkhera-Bhiwadi- Nimrana nodes being developed as part of the Delhi-Mumbai industrial corridor and other national highway networks.
Among the possible alignments being discussed is starting the expressway from the outskirts of Delhi and terminating on the Jaipur bypass, but there's no consensus on this yet. Sources said the new road could also start from the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal expressway

Chalo Dilli! It's just gonna take 4 hrs from Jaipur, soon
Jaipur: You will soon be able to reach Delhi from Jaipur in just four hours. The Rajasthan government has decided construct the proposed expressway between the two cities on a priority basis.
The expressway will bring much-needed relief to the commuters on the busy route as they will no longer have to face bumpy roads on the Delhi road at Shapura and frequent traffic jams in Bhiwadi and Behror.
Dinesh Kumar Goyal, principal secretary, public works department (PWD), said the state government has decided to take up the project on a priority basis to provide people a safe and fast route to the national capital.
The decision was taken in the wake of the mounting pressure on the Jaipur-Delhi NH-8 even as the six laning work on the highway is in progress. The proposed expressway will connect the proposed ring road in Jaipur to the Kundali-Manesar-Palwar (KMP) expressway in Haryana, which is already under construction.
"Once complete, the expressway will significantly reduce traffic on NH-8 as it will be much faster and safer. The alignment of the road is still to be fixed after a pre-feasibility study," Goyal said.
According to the officials, the expressway will cross through industrial areas of Bhiwadi and Behror and will end on the western end of Jaipur bypass allowing new industrial areas and other development activities.
The PWD has been given the responsibility of preparing the map for the expressway while the Bureau of Investment Promotion (BIP) has been entrusted to get the project's pre-feasibility report prepared.:cheers:

वैश्विक बाजार में सड़क बेचने जाएगी सरकार!
जयपुर.राजस्थान सरकार का पब्लिक वर्क्*स डिपार्टमेंट अब सड़क बनाकर बेचेगा। यह पहला मौका होगा जब किसी राज्य की सरकार बनी बनाई सड़क बिकेगी। राजस्थान सरकार के पब्लिक वर्क्*स डिपार्टमेंट के प्रिंसीपल सैक्रेटरी ओपी सैनी ने बताया, यह पीपीपी का एक नया कॉन्सैप्ट है।
अभी तक पार्टनर पैसा लगाते थे, फाइनेंस करते और फिर बेचकर मुनाफा कमाते लेकिन इसमें राज्य सरकार सीधे तौर पर सड़क बेचेगी। पहले पायलट प्रोजेक्ट के रूप में कुछ सड़कें छांटकर बेची जाएंगी। उनके अधिकार निश्चित समय के लिए निवेशक को दे दिए जाएंगे। इसके लिए बाकायदा बोली भी लगाई जाएगी।
हम निवेशकों से कहेंगे कि जो खरीदार जितने कम समय के लिए बोली लगाएगा, उसे निश्चित समय के लिए सड़क दे दी जाएगी। खरीदार से यह भी पूछा जाएगा कि वह इसे कितने साल के लिए मेंटेन कर सकते हैं? इसके लिए कम से कम बॉन्ड-अवधि को प्राथमिकता दी जाएगी। खरीदार को यह फायदा होगा कि वह उस सड़क पर टोल वसूल कर कमाई कर सकेगा।साथ ही उसे अन्य योजनाओं के लिए मेंटेन भी कर सकेगा।
महीनेभर में बन जाएगी सड़क
सड़क निर्माण का काम राजस्थान स्टेट रोड डवलपमेंट एंड कंस्ट्रक्शन कॉपरेरेशन (आरएसआरडीसी) कर रही है। सभी सड़कें आईआरसी (इंडियन रोड कॉन्ग्रेस) के मापदंडों पर बनाई जाएंगी। कुछ सड़कें टू लेन (6-7 मीटर चौड़ी) होंगी तो दो सड़कें फोर लेन बनाई जा रही हैं।
चित्तौड़, कपासन, डबोक की सड़क फोर लेन होगी। वहीं सूरतगढ़ से हनुमानगढ़ भी फोर लेन बनाई जाएगी। काम महीनेभर में पूरा हो जाएगा। बेची गई सड़कों से राज्य को रिसोर्स बेस मिलेगा। इससे मिले पैसे से राज्य में नई सड़कें बनाई जा सकेंगी।
600 करोड़ की दो परियोजनाएं
सड़क के लिए फिलहाल दो परियोजनाएं निर्धारित कर ली गई हैं। पहली अलवर से भिवाड़ी और दूसरी सूरतगढ़ से हनुमानगढ़ के बीच। पहली योजना का बजट 350 करोड़ और दूसरी 250 करोड़ रुपए है। जो भी रेडीमेड सड़क का खरीदार होगा उसे पूरे पैसे लेकर सड़क दे दी जाएगी। फिर उसे मेंटेन करने की जिम्मेदारी भी उसी होगी।
सरकार चाहती है कि बाहरी निवेश बढ़े इसलिए इस कॉन्सेप्ट को ग्लोबल मार्केट में ले जाया जाएगा। 600 करोड़ दो परियोजनाएं भी निर्धारित कर ली गई हैं।

चीरवा में 130 करोड़ की सुरंगें
उदयपुर। उदयपुर-ब्यावर मार्ग पर चीरवा की सुरंगें रफ्तार की शान बनेंगी। 130 करोड़ रूपए लागत की इन थ्री-लेन सुरंगों से आगे साढ़े नौ किलोमीटर का बाइपास होगा, जो सीधे देलवाड़ा पहुंचा देगा। इस मार्ग पर गोमती-उदयपुर फोरलेन से उदयपुर और जयपुर के बीच दूरी 33 किलोमीटर तक घट जाएगी।
कुल 924 करोड़ रूपए की इस परियोजना में सिविल कंस्ट्रक्शन की लागत 731.6 करोड़ रूपए बैठ रही है। भूतल परिवहन मंत्रालय ने रिक्वेस्ट फॉर क्वालिफिकेशन मांगी है। केन्द्र की ट्रिपल पीएसी से प्रति किलोमीटर लागत का निर्घारण स्वीकृत होने के बाद फोरलेन से पर्यावरण पर प्रभावों को जानने के लिए जनसुनवाई की तैयारी है।
राष्ट्रीय राजमार्ग प्राघिकरण ने राजसमंद जिले की जनसुनवाई के लिए भीलवाड़ा स्थित प्रदूषण नियंत्रण मण्डल और उदयपुर जिले के लिए उदयपुर स्थित कार्यालय को जनसुनवाई कराने के लिए कहा है। दोनों जिलों के कलक्टर जल्द जनसुनवाई करवा कर इसकी रिपोर्ट केन्द्रीय वन एवं पर्यावरण मंत्रालय को भेजेंगे। प्रोजेक्ट बीओटी में जाने पर राजसमंद में पड़ासली से आगे मण्डावाड़ा में पहला टोल प्लाजा और फिर नेगडिया में दूसरा टोल प्लाजा लगाना प्रस्तावित है।
दो पुल, 4 फ्लाईओवर, एक एलिवेटेड रोड
बनास और खारी नदी पर थ्री-लेन पुलों की लागत 17 करोड़ रूपए बैठेगी। केलवा चौपाटी, केलवा, राजनगर और पीपरड़ा में फ्लाईओवरों पर कुल 49 करोड़ रूपए खर्च होंगे।
नाथद्वारा में लालबाग से बाघेरी का नाका कार्यालय तक 1 किलोमीटर लंबे एलिवेटेड रोड पर 70 करोड़ रूपए खर्च होंगे। पूरे फोरलेन में 14 छोटे पुल और 256 कलवर्ट होंगे।यहीं नहीं 21 किलोमीटर का सर्विस रोड भी साथ चलेगा।
डीपीआर लगभग तैयार
अहमदाबाद की साई कंसल्टेंट कंपनी ने उदयपुर से गोमती तक 79 किलोमीटर के इस फोरलेन की डीपीआर लगभग पूरी कर ली है, जिसे सौंपने भर की देर है। डीपीआर में फोरलेन के लेवल, नक्शे, ढांचागत कार्यो को जोड़कर प्रोजेक्ट का खाका तैयार किया गया है।
10 मीटर चौड़ी होंगी सुरंगें
चीरवा में भैरूजी स्थानक के ठीक नीचे पहाड़ों में खुदाई कर 450 मीटर लंबाई एवं 10-10 मीटर चौड़ाई में दो सुरंगें बनाई जाएंगी। इसमें थ्री-लेन का प्रावधान रहेगा और दोनों में एक तरफ डेढ़ मीटर और दूसरी ओर एक मीटर चौड़ाई में फुटपाथ होंगे। सुरंगें चौड़ी होने के कारण यातायात की रफ्तार तेज रखने पर कोई अड़चन नहीं होगी।
छूटेंगे देलवाड़ा, कैलाशपुरी, पड़ासली
फोरलेन पर राजसमंद में पड़ासली से 2 किलोमीटर लंबा बाइपास निकलेगा। उदयपुर जिले में देलवाड़ा और कैलाशपुरी के पीछे से साढ़े नौ किलोमीटर लंबा बाइपास गुजरेगा, जो चीरवा घाटे में ममता रिसोर्ट के पास से होता हुआ देलवाड़ा थाने से आगे जाकर निकलेगा।

Govt to connect 3000 villages with roads: Bharat Singh
Jaipur. As many as 3,000 villages in Rajasthan will be connected with the road-network, State Public Works Department (PWD) Minister Bharat Singh has announced in the state assembly on Thursday evening. Replying debate on budgetary demands of the PWD, Roads and Bridges on Thursday evening, Singh also announced for promulgation of new roads policy in the state.
The Minister said about 3000 villages which had been left from being brought on the road map under the Prime Minister’s Gramin Sadak Yojna (PMGSY) would now have coal tar carpeted roads under the newly formulated Mahatma Gandhi State Sadak Yojna.
The new road policy which meant to substitute the one implemented in 1994, would stress up on road maintenance works prior to monsoon to take safe guard to prevent damages to the roads due to rain waters.
He said the government had planned to take up works for laying/improving roads in a stretch of 2,600 Km during 2012-13 and the target would be to complete all works by October 2013.
Besides this, works on 500 Km stretch of inter-state roads would also commence during 2012-13 that involves investment of Rs 200 crore, the Minister said.

Haryana, Rajasthan clear alignment of Delhi-Jaipur expressway
NEW DELHI: The proposed six-lane expressway from Delhi to Jaipur has cleared a major hurdle. The new alignment of the expressway, which will have a limited number of entries and exits, has been approved by Haryana and Rajasthan. The two states want National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and the highways ministry to consult them while proposing real estate development along the expressway.
Delhi government has already given an in-principle approval to the access-controlled expressway which is expected to slash travel time between the two cities to less than three hours. The length of the new alignment will be around 230-240 km. The portion of the expressway falling in Delhi will be elevated since availability of land is a problem in the national capital.
Haryana town and country planning (DTCP) secretary S S Dhillon recently wrote to NHAI saying that the state would provide all support to the Centre for execution of the project, including land acquisition matters, said a senior Haryana government official. Rough estimates by NHAI suggest the project could cost around Rs 12,000 crore. Those pockets which will be developed for residential and commercial projects along the expressway may be given access to the highway. This will cross subsidize the project for developers," said a ministry source.
The new expressway has become a necessity because of the increasing congestion on NH-8. The traffic chaos will only get worse due to the widening of the stretch between Delhi and Jaipur. At present, traffic jams are regularly reported from this stretch since the road width has reduced. "In future, this new-alignment expressway would be a part of the continuous expressway connectivity between Delhi and Mumbai," said a government source.
Haryana government officials told TOI that they have agreed to NHAI's proposal of making the link pass through Gurgaon, Manesar, Rewari and Kothputli. However, the approval comes with a rider. One of the conditions put forward by the state is that the alignment should not affect any housing or commercial projects in the state for which DTCP has already issued licences. Moreover, the state wants NHAI to elevate the portion of the expressway which cross state roads. Haryana has also asked the highway authority to help the government improvesome of the state roads along the new expressway and to provide links to them.
The new alignment is likely to be announced next week. In his letter to NHAI, Rajasthan's chief secretary has reportedly said that the state government wants the road authority to provide a link from the expressway to the industrial township of Bhiwadi.
The state has also sought a short link from Jaipur city to the expressway. As per the proposal, the expressway will join the Jaipur bypass, which falls on the outskirts of the city.

Rajasthan gets Rs 1355 crore from NABARD for roads
JAIPUR: National Bank for Agricultural and Rural Development (NABARD) on Thursday sanctioned Rs 1355 crore for the construction of roads in rural parts of Rajasthan. The financial support is in the form of soft loans under NABARD's rural infrastructure development fund.
State government is aiming to connect all the villages with population of 250 to 500 with the tar roads. However, out of 2900 eligible villages under the scheme, NABARD will only fund for 1337 villages covering 4822 kilometers. Rest of the villages will be covered from the aid received from World Bank and Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY).
With assembly election to be held in 2013, the state government was desperately looking for financial support from the external agency. The public works department (PWD) sent projects worth Rs 1,562 crore to NABARD but only Rs 1335 crore was approved by the bank.
"It is the highest amount sanctioned by the NABARD to any state for the constructions of roads. They are impressed with our work and the way we utilized the funds under (PMGSY)," said the official.
The construction of roads in the area with population of more than 500 people is in the process and so far 75% of it has been completed. Apart from rural roads the funds will also be utilized for linking the tribal and deserts villages, development of interstate highways and refurbishment of missing links in the state.
So far, through its rural infrastructure development fund (RIDF), NABARD has disbursed loans worth Rs 5,406 crore to Rajasthan till September 2011.

Work has restarted on Kota's Chambal cable stayed bridge (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=206683&page=62) with a revised deadline. Press Release from RMD Kwikform:
Juy 13: RMD Kwikform Win Kota Bridge Contract (http://www.rmdkwikformnews.co.uk/rmd-kwikform-win-kota-bridge-contract/)
RMD Kwikform India is to design and supply shoring and formwork solutions for the first axial suspension cable stayed bridge ever built in India.
The Kota Bridge’s innovative design sees a single 350-metre span cross the entire width of the Chambal River, with three approach spans on either side. It is these approach spans that will feature RMD Kwikform shoring solutions.
RMD Kwikform’s ultra heavy duty Megashor shoring has been chosen as the support system for the 32 metre high, 32m wide and 60m long main deck of the approach spans. Having to deal with local wind conditions, Megashor also has the ability to cope with the dead weight of the deck itself.
A combination of Superslim, GTX Beams and specially designed crank soldiers are to be employed on the cantilever wing form, while the pier cap will be constructed using a Rapidshor system.
The bridge will be finished by the end of 2014, with RMD Kwikform completing its involvement in August 2013, just 13 months after starting work on the project.
Arul Raja, Vice President at RMD Kwikform India, said:
“In supplying formwork and shoring solution to the Kota Bridge we have worked in partnership with construction firms Gammon India and Hyundai Engineering to deliver a bespoke solution in line with the project’s environmental considerations. “RMD Kwikform’s involvement in a project of this significance further demonstrates its on going commitment to supporting large scale projects in India.”
This bridge is a part of the Kota Bypass project on NH76 in Rajasthan. For renders and project info, check out Hindustani's post (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=206683&page=62).

New highway to offer better connectivity between Jaipur and Gujarat
Jaipur: The western part of the state will soon be better connected with the capital as well as neighbouring Gujarat. More than half a dozen highways are awaiting financial sanctions from the government after which Suratgarh’s connectivity with Jaipur and Gujarat will improve.
Sources in the public works department (PWD) said developers are about to give financial disclosures after which work on highways will begin.
The projects include Ajmer-Nagaur-Bikaner-Suratgarh and Sikar-Bikaner-Suratgarh. It will be ensured that far-flung areas of western Rajasthan are connected with Jaipur via Ajmer.
PWD officials said Suratgarh will now be connected with Gujarat as after the completion of this highway people willing to go to the neighbouring state will passs through Nagaur and Pali. The highway will be linked to NH-14 in Sirohi, making way to Gujarat.
This highway will be a boon for exporters of the Shekhawati region and Jodhpur who until now have been using Gujarat ports for transporting their goods, said analysts.
The officials said the civil works of as many as seven highways will start soon. Of these, construction of one highway has already begun while of others will start after getting financial sanctions.
All highways will be tolled and people will be taxed for using these.
It would take around two years to complete all these projects, which include two four-lane highways, the officials said.
Notably, the development of highways in the state is being taken up again after objections raised by the ministry of environment and forest stalling the progress of projects, including Kishangarh-Ajmer-Udaipur highway, which recently had recently received a green signal from the ministry but the developer is yet to begin the project.
