Two of six PPP applicants continue in D1 highway tender

Two of six applicants have been short-listed in a tender for the construction and operation of five selected stretches of the D1 highway between Martin and Prešov within the first package of planned public-private partnership (PPP) highway projects.

Two of six applicants have been short-listed in a tender for the construction and operation of five selected stretches of the D1 highway between Martin and Prešov within the first package of planned public-private partnership (PPP) highway projects.

One of the selected consortiums includes two Slovak firms - Doprastav, a.s. and Vahostav - SK, a.s. The Transport Ministry's spokesman Marián Jánošík informed SITA on January 29 that two bidders qualified in the tender: French-Swiss consortium, comprised of the companies Vinci Concessions S.A. and Skanska Infrastructure Development AB, and a six-member international consortium featuring French firms Bouyges Travaux Publics SA, Colas SA, the Hungarian company Intertoll-Europe Zrt., Portuguese firm Mota Engil, SGPS, SA as well as the two Slovak companies.

An eleven-member commission at the Transport Ministry has chosen the two bidders based on their meeting the set tender criteria. The commission could have chosen a maximum of four applicants.

A concession agreement in the first PPP project applies to project documentation, construction, funding, and operation and maintenance of the D1 highway's five stretches, totalling 74.84 kilometres. The concession will expire in thirty years at most. Tender terms, however, do not specify the estimated net value of the concession. The Transport Ministry said some time ago that it was SKK49.1 billion without VAT. SITA
