L&T Likely To Build A Portion Of Mumbai’s Coastal Road

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has selected the contractor to construct a part of the coastal road – the stretch from Priyadarshani Park at Napeansea road to Haji Ali, on Monday. Larsen and Toubro was the lowest bidder. It will now put the proposal for the civic standing committee’s approval. However, the bid value (cost) of the package has not yet been disclosed by BMC. The civic body had estimated the construction cost of the 3.7km stretch at 2719.75 crore. Sanjay Mukherjee, additional municipal commissioner, in charge of the project said, “In the coming 10-15 days, we will finish all the calculations and then we will be able to disclose the final project cost. BMC has divided the first phase — the 9.98km south Mumbai stretch (i.e. from Princess Street flyover till the south end of the Bandra Worli sea link) into three parts. Separate bids were invited for each. Of the 9.98-km long road that will be built along the west coast of Mumbai, this is the longest in the three packages from Priyadarshani to Haji Ali.
