Phase-II of cement road project may also face delays

The Phase-II of cement concrete road project worth Rs 324 crore is also likely to face delays. Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has relaxed a couple of conditions bending to contractors´ lobby, that too after beginning the tendering process of 18 of 22 packages.

Cement concrete road project Phase-I worth Rs 123 crore has already been hit by inordinate delay and has also caused a huge financial loss to the civic body. A major reason for this was entire project awarded to one company.

CM Devendra Fadnavis approved Phase-II in which state and NIT are to contribute Rs 100 crore each while remaining Rs 124 crore will be borne by NMC.

NMC floated tenders for six packages in first step comprising 13 roads and costing Rs 81.32 crore followed by more six packages comprising 17 roads and costing of Rs 93.55 crore. Now, tenders have been floated for six more packages comprising 19 roads and costing Rs 78 crore.CM Devendra Fadnavis
