Delhi tenders

01 Jul 1999

INDIA's Ministry of Railways invited three prequalification tenders in May for work on the 55·3 km Delhi Mass Rapid Transit metro network which was officially launched last October (RG 9.98 p567). According to the ministry 'all the bids are global and are open to Indian or international companies who can participate either individually or as a joint venture/consortium.'

The three tenders cover civil engineering work on the tunnels and stations, design and installation of the signalling, train control and communications systems, and the supply of passenger rolling stock. Total cost of the metro is put at Rs48·6bn, and completion is envisaged for March 2005.
