Vijayawada: The AMRC (Amaravati Metro Rail Corporation) has picked France-based Systra Group to prepare the Detailed Project Report (DPR) of the proposed Light Metro Rail in Vijayawada. AMRC has finished evaluation of the bids filed by 5 global players earlier last week. Systra Group filed the lowest bid.
AMRC managing director NP Ramakrishna Reddy said,“Out of the firms which participated in the bidding for preparation of the DPR, Systra Group filed the lowest bid. We are working out on the modalities to enter into an agreement with it by January, 2018. This would be the first project in the country to have an international consultant.”
Once the work is awarded, it will take six months for the consultant to prepare the report.
Reddy added,“We expect the report to be ready by July 2018.”
