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