Construction Supervision of 1st Year Roads (Balance Works) under Orissa State Roads Project, Orissa, India – World Bank Funded Project
The State Government of Orissa through Government of India has received a loan of about US$250 million equivalent from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (World Bank) towards the cost of the proposed Orissa State Roads Project (OSRP) and intends to apply part of the proceeds of this loan to payments under the contract for Construction Supervision Consultancy (CSC) services. The roads are:
- Bhawanipatna- Khariar (SH 16)
- Bhadrak – Chandbali (SH 9)
- Bhadrak – Anandpur (SH 53)
- Berhampur – Taptapani (SH 17)
The OWD has established a Project Management Unit (PMU) exclusively to be in-charge of the Orissa State Roads Project. The PMU is headed by the Chief Engineer, World Bank Projects, Orissa assisted by appropriate professional and support staff. The duration of the Supervision Consultant services for the balance work under Phase-1 is now estimated for 16-19 months of construction period plus for 12 months of defect liability period. The civil works for the above corridors consist mainly of strengthening and widening of the existing single or intermediate-lane width to double lane width with paved / soft shoulders. The work also consists of construction, rehabilitation and replacement of a number of cross drainage structures including some major and minor bridges and roadside drains. Certain road stretches also require road safety provision such as sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, parking etc with social & environmental safeguards.
