Mumbai: The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) has received overwhelming response from national as also international companies to construct the 33.5-km long Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ Metro-3 corridor.
In all 31 bids from 9 consortiums have been received by the MMRC for the 7 packages. There are 4 bidders each for the first four packages and there are 5, 7 and 3 bidders for the next three packages respectively.
“The response shown is very encouraging”, said Ashwini Bhide, Managing Director, MMRC. “The response also indicates the kind of confidence bidders have in the government and its agency. The Metro-3 corridor will certainly reduce the congestion in the suburban railway and avoid unfortunate loss of life due to congestion. It is high time we respected human life”, said Bhide further.
