General consultant for Indian Lucknow Metro to be chosen

General consultant for Indian Lucknow Metro to be chosen:A pre-bid conference regarding selection of general consultant to supervise contract management of Lucknow metro project was held recently where three parties participated.

The parties comprised joint venture consortiums of big companies – a) JV between Egis Rail, Aecom Asia and Egis India; b) JV between Aisa, KNRV and AARVRA c) JV between OCG, Rites and DBI. The general consultant will look after overall contract management like preparing bid documents, floating of tenders, supervision of works etc in place of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). Once general consultant is chosen it will replace DMRC which is currently serving as the interim consultant to Lucknow metro.

While civil work on various metro stations is underway, for Mawaiya station LMRC needs to send request to army afresh. According to new changed rules, army has asked LMRC to fill in the new format for getting army’s land at Mawaiya for building metro station. LMRC needs about 66 Sqm land near Mawaiya’s railway line to build Mawaiya metro-station. Now LMRC has to send a revised request in that standard format to army for getting that land. The new rules are applicable for all PSUs and government agencies which want to take army land.

For this financial year, LMRC has sufficient funds given by the state government and to be pooled in by various local government agencies like LDA, Housing Board and UPSIDC. But it would need PIB’s clearance to get foreign loan from agencies like European Investment Bank to make mobilization payment for expensive tenders like procurement of metro coaches.

Meanwhile the SPV for executing metro-rail project in city, LMRC has asked the consultant- RITES to prepare and submit Kanpur’s DPR (detailed project report) by the first week of August 2015. The routes have already been decided on two corridors – North-South and East-West of metro.
