The Nagpur Smart and Sustainable City Development Corporation Limited on Thursday floated tender worth Rs165 crore for completing pending works of roads and bridges in Pardi, Punapur, Bharatwada and Bhandewadi areas in East Nagpur under Area Based Development (ABD) of Smart City project.
NSSCDCL chief executive officer Chinmay Gotmare said the earlier contract with Shapoorji Pallonji Company Private Limited (SPCPL) was cancelled due to delay in the work.
On October 10, 2018, NSSCDCL had engaged SPCPL and issued work order to carry out the TenderSURE project worth ₹650 crore.
In the last meeting of the NSSSCDCL board of directors, SPCPL was allowed to withdraw from the project. SPCPL, a Mumbai based firm, had left the project comprising 49.7km roads, 28 bridges and culverts, four elevated storage reservoirs and allied civil works midway citing lack of work front in ABD.
The project completion date was April 26, 2020. But, work was done for 12.36km roads, 10 bridges, culverts and four ESRS. NSSCDCL now intends to complete the remaining works in six months.
The pending works have been divided into six packages, due to which they will be done on time, as per Gotmare.
In the new tender process, four packages are for laying cement concrete roads (first package of ₹62.4 crore, second ₹33.3 crore, third ₹14.7 crore and fourth ₹21.7 crore). The fifth package of ₹22.2 crore is for construction of bridges and sixth package of ₹10.4 crore is for completing the elevated storage reservoirs.
The tender process is likely to be completed by December 15.
