DPWH sets deadline bid of P16-B airport project
MANILA, Aug 1 (PIA) -- The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has set the deadline for both local and international construction companies to a pre-qualify bid to finance, design, construct, operate, and maintain the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Expressway Phase II Project.
In a press statement, the invitation by the Special Bids and Awards Committee (SBAC) for Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Projects of the DPWH has set the deadline on September 18.
DPWH chief Rogelio L. Singson said he expects a good turnout of potential investors competing for the NAIA Expressway Phase II Project.
Qualification documents for interested parties include bidding guidelines and project details for phase I adjustment works, phase II works, at-grade Entertainment City works, and operations and maintenance.
Singson added said project is a follow-up to the Daang Hari-SLEX Link Road Project.
According to DPWH, the P15.52-billion four-lane elevated expressway project with a total length of 7.15 km including ramps, provides access to NAIA Terminals I, II, and III and links to existing expressways, namely, the Skyway and the Manila-Cavite Toll Expressway.
It will also link to the proposed elevated NLEx-SLEx Connector Road and to the Metro Manila Skyway (Stage 3) extension to Araneta Avenue (C-3).
When completed, travel time from Skyway to NAIA Terminal 1 will be reduced from the average 24 minutes to eight minutes, thus, providing comfort to some 80,000 daily travelers. (DPWH/RJB/JEG-PIA NCR)
