MEIL receives LoA for two packages of Borivali-Thane twin tube road tunnel

Megha Engineering & Infrastructures Limited (MEIL) has received a letter of acceptance worth Rs 144 billion for the implementation of Package I and Package II of the Borivali-Thane twin tube road tunnel project. Earlier, Larsen & Toubro (L&T) had emerged as the lowest bidder for Package II; however, its bid was rejected for administrative reasons. Bids for the same were invited by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Au­thority in December 2022. Package I involves the design and construction of the 5.75-km-long Borivali-side long twin tube road tunnel, app­ro­aches and other civil works. Package II involves the design and construction of the 6.09-km-long Thane-side long twin tube road tunnel, appro­a­ches and other civil works between Thane and Borivali, in Maharashtra. The completion period for the work is 48 months.
