Companies interested in the tender to build the bypass of Chimaltenango now have until December 20 to submit their proposals.

Monday, November 18, 2013

This is the fourth time that the date for submission of proposals has been to postponed in the tender for the construction of an "alternate route to go through the south of in order to avoid the bottleneck that is generated in the sector", reported Prensalibre.com. The road is estimated to cost approximately $32 million.

Alejandro Sinibaldi, Minister of Communications, said they have not managed to award the project because they lacked the necessary resources that were included in a loan already approved by Congress.

We only need the Ministry of Finance to transfer the resources and make the award effective, which is expected to close in December.
