Bids have been called for works in six packages for the construction of Jalna-Nanded expressway.
A total of 18 players, including industry leaders like L&T, G R Infraprojects, Afcons Infra, IRB infrastructure and Navayuga Engineering have been pre-qualified to undertake the construction of this expressway, writes the MetroRailGuy.
All the six packages, namely, JNE-1 to JNE-6, comes with a 900-day construction deadline.
Earlier in April 2023, the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) had invited request for qualifications (RFQ) to select eligible contractors for the construction of the 179.85 km Jalna-Nanded expressway.
It may be recalled that Maharashtra government has proposed to develop additional connectors or access controlled expressways to link major districts in the state to Mumbai-Nagpur Samruddhi Mahamarg.
The Jalna-Nanded greenfield expressway is one such connector which will provide a direct and the fastest connectivity for Nanded, Hingoli, Parbhani and Jalna districts to the state capital Mumbai and further to the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) as well.
The expressway starts at Jalna on the Mumbai-Nagpur Samruddhi Mahamarg and traverses southwest through Jalna, Parbhani and Nanded district and ends on the Nanded-Deglur-Telangana NH 161.
The six-lane expressway will have a design speed of 120 kmph with a 100-metre right-of-way.
A unique feature of the expressway will be the provision of a 20-metre space for the construction of a high-speed rail corridor.
