Ahmedabad civic body starts Rs 1,200 cr Gandhi Ashram revamp project

The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has issued a tender worth Rs 218 crore for the Rs 1,200 crore Gandhi Ashram redevelopment project. The tender for the Gandhi Ashram Precinct Development at Sardar Patel Stadium in West Zone also includes the restructuring of the Chandrabhaga river, a tributary of the Sabarmati that runs through the ashram precincts, in addition to the usual construction activities.

The Chandrabhaga Drain Development section of the project, where the river will be embanked by landscaped areas, footpaths, and carriageways on the banks, will cost between Rs 30 to Rs 40 crore, according to the official.

Three bridges, each with a width of around 24 m, are also proposed to be built at various locations along the river's length. The work must be completed in two years, according to AMC's technical bid document. The declaration of an epidemic, which was incorporated in the amended tender document in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, is another example of force majeure conditions.

As of now, 66 of the 263 families who live on the Gandhi ashram grounds have been rehabilitated so far. The Ahmedabad collector serves as the committee's chairman.

The scope of work is defined in the tender document by seven key areas. Road work, footpaths and pavements, bridge construction, a 38 lakh litre water supply sump, a water supply pump house, a 15 km water supply network, sewerage and stormwater networks, and stone pitching and lining for road, bridge, and canal bank protection are all part of the project.

Sewage water and stormwater mix in the Chandrabhaga river channel. By constructing a check dam on the project's upstream side and laying sewerage lines up to the existing Jalvihar STP, the tender winner will be able to clean up the river and ensure that sewage is diverted to an existing sewerage treatment plant (STP).

The tender winner must provide a 1,000 sq ft site office for AMC officials, and the office must be built before construction begins. The deadline for submitting an online tender has been extended from September 28 to October 5.

Working drawings would be provided in a phased manner as per the sequence of construction, according to a document listing the questions raised at the pre-bid meeting and AMC's responses and clarifications.
