MSRDC invites bids for Rs.4,800 cr tunnels

    Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC)
    Touted to be one of the longest four-lane tunnels in the world, Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC), has invited bids for building 22-meter wide four lanes tunnels connecting Mumbai and Pune highways at a cost of Rs.4,800 crore. The 8.9-km tunnels would be built to cut the time taken to commute between the two cities through the existing Mumbai Pune Expressway (MPEW) and the project is likely to be commissioned before 2021. According to official sources, the tunnels will be a part of the missing link project, a 19.8-km stretch of eight-laned roads on the MPEW which will reduce distance by 6 km and the time taken by 20-25 minutes. Though there are tunnels longer than these, but none of this length with four lanes and would be the widest tunnels at this length. Connecting Kusgaon village to Chavani village on the Pune side, these would be twin tunnels constructed for travelling in opposite directions. Each four-lane tunnel will be separated by a distance of 50 meters. Composed of two tunnels and two viaducts alternately, the project will also include the construction of a cable-stayed bridge in a valley in Khopoli. To be constructed at a height of 130 metre, it will be a 700-metre long bridge with eight lanes and one of the tunnels will also be passing 150 metre below a lake in Lonavala.
