Contractors Private Limited has emerged as the lowest bidder for the financial bids opened on July 16 for the construction of 11 rail bridges for the 508-km Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed rail project which is also popularly known as “bullet train project”.

NHSRCL spokesperson Sushma Gaur said, “The financial bids of three technically qualified bidders were opened and M.G. Contractors Pvt Ltd is the lowest bidder.”

She said that the financial bids were for the construction of 11 special bridges including four PSC bridges and erection of seven steel truss bridges between Zaroli village at Maharashtra-Gujarat border and Vadodara in Gujarat and in the Union territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli for the construction of Mumbai Ahmedabad High Speed Rail Project.
