"RInfra has received the Letter of Acceptance (LOA) from the NHAI for the construction of Vikkaravandi to Sethiyahopu section of NH-45 C in Tamil Nadu after it emerged as the lowest bidder for the development of the project on Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) basis," the company said in a statement.
The project is part of the Centre's flagship programme of the National Highway Development Programme (phase IV) and is funded by NHAI. The infrastructure major, one of the largest NHAI concessionaires, after quoting Rs 711 crore for the project, was declared the successful bidder.
The project is to be completed within 24 months. The contract includes design and construction of the 65.96 km highway including major and minor bridges, railway over bridges, flyover, bypasses and toll plaza as major components of the project. The maintenance period for the project is four years.
