Three consortia continue in the race for the Automated People Mover (APM) P3 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) after two teams have dropped out of the tender process.
As we reported in late September 2016, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) shortlisted all five teams that submitted Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) for delivering the APM P3.
These teams were namely:
- GatewayConnectors: Kiewit Development Company, Meridiam LAX-APM, LLC, Skanska Infrastructure Development Inc.
- LA ConnextPartners: Ferrovial Airports International Ltd., Cintra Global Ltd., Bechtel Development Company, Inc., John Laing Investments Limited and Bombardier Transportation (Holdings) USA Inc.
- LAX ConnectingAlliance: OHL Infrastructure, Inc., Acciona Concesiones, S.I., Star America Fund GPLLC, Aberdeen Global Infrastructure GP II Ltd., Axium Infrastructure US Inc., Charles Pankow Builders, Ltd.
- LINXS: Fluor Enterprises, Inc., Balfour Beatty Investments, Inc., HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions GmbH, ACS Infrastructure Development, Inc.
- PWA: Plenary Group USA Ltd, Walsh Investors, LLC, AECOM Capital, Inc., JLC Infrastructure Fund I L.P., Sumitomo Corporation of Americas.
According to sources, the teams that are no longer in the tender process are those led by Ferrovial and Plenary.
The project will be a complex and challenging element of the proposed Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP), which would create a world-class transportation system for Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Estimated at US$5.5 billion, LAMP would be one of the largest construction programs in Los Angeles City history.
The proposed program includes five major program elements; the Automated People Mover that would connect 3 on-airport stations to Metro Rail and transit services – providing a seamless connection to public transportation, as well as to new a consolidated Rent-A-Car center, and 2 Intermodal Transportation Facilities (ITFs) for additional parking, meeter-greeter activities, and roadway improvements. The program is currently undergoing environmental and public review.
