Mumbai: Simplex Infra, JKumar, NCC to develop Metro-7 corridor

Simplex Infrastructure, JKumar Infraprojects and NCC have won the contracts for different packages of the 16.5 km Andheri (East) to Dahisar (East) Metro-7 corridor.

"The Executive Committee of the Authority, headed by Maharashtra Chief Secretary Swadheen Kshatriya, accorded approval to appointment of the contractors to design and construct an elevated viaduct and 16 stations in three packages," Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) said in a statement today.

Simplex Infrastructure has been awarded the contract to design and construct the first package consisting of an elevated viaduct and five elevated stations including Andheri (East), Shankarwadi, JVLR Junction, Mahanand and new Ashok Nagar.

The agency has selected JKumar Infraprojects to design and construct the second package consisting of an elevated viaduct and six elevated stations - Aarey, Dindoshi, Pathan Wadi, Pushpa Park, Bandongri and Mahindra & Mahindra.

NCC has bagged the contract to design and construct the third package consisting of an elevated viaduct and five elevated stations including Magathane, Devipada, National Park, Ovaripada and Dahisar(E).

Metropolitan Commissioner U P S Madan had earlier said the preparatory work for the Rs 6,208 crore project will begin soon after the awarding of the contract, but the actual civil work will commence after monsoon.

"These winning bidders will design and construct the entire corridor and all 16 stations within a period of 30 months," MMRDA said.

    It would be fair if Mumbaikars expect the line to start operations with the dawn of 2020. The VAG corridor took unreasonably long. Infrastructure should not a in response to needs or as a reactionary measure. It should a proactive strategy. For that we need people who are visionaries - who can see the future and provide in advance, because they know it will take time to put up the infrastructure. So by the time the future is here, we are fully prepared to welcome it, rather than to face it.
