Airport expressway bids submitted

By MST News | Apr. 09, 2013 at 12:01am
Two of the four pre-qualified companies submitted Monday their bid proposals for the right to finance, design, construct, operate and maintain the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Expressway Phase II Project under the Public-Private Partnership program of the government.

Optimal Infrastructure Development Inc. owned by San Miguel Holdings Corp. and Manila North Tollways Corp. of the Metro Pacific Group of Company, are two remaining interested firms who passed the initial checking of completeness of technical proposals during the submission and opening of bids before the DPWH Special Bids and Awards Committee headed by Undersecretary Rafael Yabut, representatives from the Public-Private Partnership Center, Department of Finance, Office of the Solicitor General, Commission on Audit, Office of the Ombudsman, Japan International Cooperation Agency, and project advisors Development Bank of the Philippines and International Finance Corp. held at the DPWH Central Office.

The submitted bid documents will be evaluated within a week before the financial bids which are kept in a safety vault to be opened on April 15.

The two other prequalified bidders—Ayala-led Ayala Corp. Inc. and India’s IL&FS Transportation Networks Ltd.—withdrew from participating in the auction.

The NAIA Expressway Project Phase II will supplement the completed Phase I, which interfaced with the Manila South Luzon Expressway at Sales Interchange.

The proposed Phase II expressway component will involve provision of elevated travelway structures over the Sales Avenue, Andrews Avenue, Domestic Airport Road and MIA Road. The proposed elevated expressway will tie in with the Diosdado Macapagal Blvd. where it will terminate through an interchange.

The proposed NAIA Expressway Phase II alignment has a total length of 7.15 kilometers from its tie in point at the terminus of NAIA Expressway Phase I to its connection with Diosdado Macapagal Blvd. and PAGCOR City.

The project was approved by the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) Board on May 30, 2012 for a cost of P15.52 billion.

PAGCOR locators and licenses will provide Infrastructure Support Fund for P6.5 billion to cover the construction project.
