El Salvador: Preparations for Tender for Design of Road Works

The Ministry of Public Works is waiting for the final approval of a $122 million loan with Japan in order to begin a tender process for the design and construction of a bypass in San Miguel.

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Authorities at the Ministry of Finance and Public Works indicated to Laprensagrafica.com that in the coming days they will "... request that the Legislature give final approval for this financing."

Public Works Minister Gerson Martinez said that "... 'Once the decree has been approved... we will begin the bidding process for the design. The design of this work and bridges will take approximately one year, after that the tender process begins and reaches the construction phase. '"

"... Although it has not yet been decided whether the project to be developed in the municipalities of Quelepa and Moncagua, will run in one or more processes of recruitment, the official stated that the construction phase would last about two years. This means between procurement, design and construction, the running time will be more than three years.

"... It will have a length of 21.87 kilometers, of which 3.59 will be an expansion to four lanes between route to Moncagua and El Obrajuelo; 9.45 kilometers opened up to four lanes between El Obrajuelo and Hato Nuevo and 8.83 kilometers opened up from Hato Nuevo to El Papalon.
