PPP for Highway Lighting and Surveillance Delayed

Due to the effects of the pandemic, Salvadoran authorities decided to postpone until March the date for submitting bids for the tender for the lighting and video-surveillance of 143 kilometers of road sections, a contract to be executed through a Public-Private Partnership.

In early February 2020, CentralAmericaData reported that the tender had begun and that companies interested in applying for the project would have four months to submit their technical and financial proposals.

Although the schedule established significant progress in 2020, it could not be met, as restrictions were imposed due to the covid-19 outbreak.

Romeo Herrera, Minister of Public Works, told Elmundo.sv that "... the extension was chosen after requests from interested companies. 'The project is moving forward and we expect all the companies to submit bids and then start with the evaluation and awarding stage of the project'."

The PPP will last 15 years and will have a $13 million investment amount. The four road segments are: Santa Tecla - La Libertad with 23 km, La Gloria - El Espino with 52 km, El Espino - San Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez International Airport of El Salvador, with 43 km and Plaza de los Cocos - Zacatecoluca with 25 km. It is estimated that on average more than 23,750 vehicles travel these stretches every day.
