Con­struc­tion con­tract for 3rd Mac­tan-Cebu bridge ready for award­ing

Business World - - THE NATION -

CON­STRUC­TION OF the P27.9-bil­lion Cebu-Cor­dova Bridge project is ex­pected to start soon as the gov­ern­ment is ready to award the con­tract, ac­cord­ing to the Cebu provin­cial gov­ern­ment. Sec­re­tary Adelino B. Si­toy of the Pres­i­den­tial Leg­isla­tive Li­ai­son Of­fice told Gov­er­nor Hi­lario P. Da­vide III last week that two for­eign con­trac­tors, one a Span­ish firm and the other Korean, are in the fi­nal list of con­tenders.

“Ang target this month i- award to the most qual­i­fied bid­der,” said Mr. Si­toy who was in Cebu City last week for a fo­rum. The Cebu-Cor­dova Bridge, the third bridge to link Mac­tan is­land to main­land Cebu, is a pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship project with Metro Pa­cific Toll­ways and De­vel­op­ment Corp. (MPTDC). A ground­break­ing cer­e­mony for the toll road was held in March.
