DMRC To Lead Metro Extension Project For Phase 1C And 1D

The Jaipur Metro Railway Corporation (JMRC) last week cleared the decks for starting work on the extension of Jaipur Metro, by appointing the DMRC as the general consultant for Line 1C and Line 1D.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), being the consultant will now float tenders and commence the work on the extension project.

This process will save a huge amount of time and would help the extension work to get over quickly.

This is for the second time that DMRC will get the responsibility to make metro lines in the Pink City. Earlier, the metro agency has acted as a consultant for development of Phase-1A from Mansarovar to Chandpole.

However, for the extension project under phase 1B, the JMRC itself had floated tenders and then awarded it to a Taiwan-based turnkey contractor.

While the DMRC took less than four years to build the first phase covering a length of 9.63 km, the second phase extension of 2.4 km with a separate contactor took over five years. This prompted the JMRC to hand over the project to DMRC rather than JMRC floating tender and appointing a turnkey contractor by itself.
