Tata Projects today said its joint venture with South Korean company Daewoo E&C has bagged a Rs 5,612 crore contract to build a part of the Mumbai Trans harbour Link.
The contract is to design and build the 'package two' of the ambitious sea link which will connect mainland Mumbai with the eastern suburbs across the harbour, a company statement said.
The work involves building a 7.8 km long bridge section across the Mumbai Bay including the Shivaji Nagar interchange at Navi Mumbai, the company said.
The company claimed it had emerged as the lowest bidder for both the Sea Packages, package 1 and package 2, but was awarded only one work.
The project will use reverse circulation drill method for foundation and erection of a large block (180m) orthotropic steel deck structure at navigational span, it said, adding that it will be importing specialsied steel from Japan for the fabrication.
Earlier, EPC major L&T had bagged a Rs 8,650 crore project to build package 1 and 3 of the MTHL from the Mumbai Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (MMRDA), the implementing agency for the much-delayed project.
The MTHL is a 21.8 km bridge which, when completed, will be the longest in the country. A recent media report had said the overall cost of the project has soared 295 per cent to over Rs 17,000 crore since the link was first conceived in 2005.
