Mumbai metro Line 3 contracts awarded
Thursday, July 07, 2016



MUMBAI Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) has signed contracts worth a total of Rs 181.1bn ($US 2.7bn) with five consortia for the construction of Mumbai metro Line 3, which will run for 33.5km from Santacruz Electronics Export Processing Zone (Seepz) in the north of the city to Cuffe Parade in the southern district of Colaba

Tendering for the project began in 2013 and nine consortia were shortlisted to bid in September 2014. Five consortia emerged as lowest-price bidders in October 2015, but the total cost of the offers across the seven construction lots was around 50% higher than the estimate in the detailed project report, which was completed in 2011

Some updates:

• Construction of both lines to begin from September.
• Line 3 (Colaba - Seepz) construction will start after monsoon.
• Tenders for Line 4 (Wadala-Thane-Kasarvadavli), Line 6 (Jogeshwari-Kanjurmarg) and Line 2A (DN Nagar-Bandra-Mankhurd stretch) to be issued in the next few months.

According to the Hindustan Times website, construction of two Mumbai Metro lines (Line 2A and Line 7) will begin mid-monsoon, during the first week of this September.

http://www.hindustantimes.com/mumbai...sqgBtdRMM.html

I find it interesting that construction of those Metro lines has to begin in the middle of the monsoon, because it is typical practice to halt construction of even the most important projects during the monsoon, mainly due to the strong winds and heavy rains it brings. The reason for this is that the Maharashtra state government wants to ensure that the two lines are operational by mid-2019, in time for it to showcase them as an achievement int he run-up to elections later that year.

Foundations stone has already been laid by PM beginning of 2015. This will be actual construction, soil testing is already going on and so is barricading.

Foundation stone is usually laid before tender process in India. Tenders are allotted so construction will being on 3 new lines before September.

I do hope so - special the most important line - no no. 3 is under planning since about 40 years and were often "promised to start construction soon"

another Groundbreaking - as I wrote in August! Soil test starts after ground break?? this means construction works are far away! such work is normally done before groundbreaking! but it seems in India somw is working other than in the world.
This large underground line will never build in only 6 years and in the now published budget! - look to other metroprojects in India! they can be happy if part is operationable in 10 years!

Something interesting I found in the Mumbai Metro thread at the local India forum: Underground rail was first proposed in the early 1920s and later in 1950. It turns out that the Colaba-Seepz metro route has an alignment similar to the one for an underground rail route proposed during the colonial era and again during Jawaharlal Nehru's rule.

WR Davidge, a consulting town planner, suggested an underground rapid transit system around 1922-23, as indicated on files on the old proposals made during the British Raj era and then Nehru's regime. The second proposal by PG Pantakar, the head of BEST's engineering section and a member of Indian Road Congress, came three decades later.
