The works which will have to be completed in no more than six months also include drainage structures and water control.

This solution is not the same as the one which the Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MTOP) had initially identified as the "best option".

In total there were five companies that submitted proposals, including the builder Hernan Solis, the company responsible for maintenance of the sewer.

"... This company (Hernan Solis) delivered a budget which was ¢600 million ($1.2 million) cheaper, which according to the contract conditions, this gave them the highest score, however, a technical aspect motivate the MOPT to change its mind.

According to the minister, Pedro Castro, everything came down to the seismic safety issue, which meant that when evaluating the proposals, the MOPT's technical department determined that Codocsa was the best choice," noted an article in La Prensa Libre.
