The PPP Project includes the design, construction, expansion, improvement, repair, remodeling, operation, maintenance and commercial exploitation of 6 road corridors for a 15–year term.

In addition, the Resolution approved the documents that will rule the PPP Project (General Bid Specifications, Specific Bid Specifications and the PPP Contract and its annexes), which can be consulted in the NRD offices or here.

Offers shall be submitted on 3 April 2018 between 9 am and 11 am at the NRD offices, attaching an offer maintenance bond for USD 15,000,000. Afterwards, envelopes No. 1 shall be opened.

The PPP Project created great expectations as it is the first infrastructure project developed under this modality. Publications of Stages 2 and 3 are expected on the following months.
