Hyderabad-based infrastructure construction company NCC has bagged the first construction contract for the Pune Metro. This is a Rs 499-crore bid for the construction of elevated metro rail viaducts for the 10.75 km of the metro line.

Four companies were shortlisted for the first of the construction tenders for the metro. Afcon Infrastructure, Simplex Infrastructure Ltd, NCC, and Gayatri Projects and Major Bridge Engineering Co as a JV. Maharashtra Metro Rail Corp (Maha Metro) MD Brijesh Dixit said NCC offered a very competitive rate and it was in line with the what was quoted for the Nagpur Metro. NCC is also executing a project for the Nagpur Metro. Construction work is expected to begin in a week in the Pimpri Chinchwad-Range Hills stretch, Dixit said.

This is the first stretch on the north-south corridor for which the tender was floated for the Rs 11,420-crore high-capacity Pune Metro project; it is being executed by Maha Metro, a Government of India and Maharashtra government JV. Pune Metro Phase I has two corridors running east-west and north-south — a 16.59-km line from PCMC to Swargate and 14.93 km from Vanaz to Ramwadi.

Seven companies have evinced interest in this corridor from Vanaz to Civil Cour. AFCONS Infrastructure, TATA Projects, NCC, Simplex Infrastructures, YFC Projects, IL&FS Engineering and Construction Company, and ITD Cementation India are among them.

Dixit said with this work on 18 km is set to start and this is more that 50% of the proposed 31 km planned. They will be able to meet the December 19 target in line with the progress made at the Nagpur Metro. The first 5.5 km of the Nagpur Metro will open in the second half of this year and thereafter they will continue to open 6 km every six months, Dixit said.
