Proinversión said that the consortium complied with all the technical requirements. The economic proposal and the award of the project will take place on March 28th.
Proinversión announced on February 4th that three teams had been pre-qualified for the project but last week only one team submitted the final bid.
The two consortia that didn't submit final bids are the following:
The project has an estimated investment amount of around US$5.7 billion.
The concessionaire will be responsible for financing, design, construction, electromechanical equipment, provision of rolling stock, operation and maintenance of the project for a period of 35 years. The scheme involves a 27km east-west metro line with 27 stations and an 8km airport branch with a further eight stations.
The project will improve connection between the east and west parts of the city of Lima. It will connect the districts of Lima (Ate, Santa Anita) with the center of Lima and Callao and will join Metro Line 1 (Villa El Salvador - San Juan de Lurigancho) and Metropolitan Line 1 (Chorrillos - Independence) with north-south routes.
Metro Line 2 is part of a network that integrates five lines: Line 1, now operational, and three other lines still in the process of being implemented.
