Mexico's SCT will not award road concession

The Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT) of Mexico, the national federal entity in Mexico in charge of concession projects, will not award the "Viaducto La Raza Indios Verdes Santa Clara"

Two bidders submit proposal for the project:

Promotora y Operadora de Infraestructura (P-infra) finally did not submit proposals.

According to SCT the economical proposals submitted by Omega Corporacion - led consortium and Mota-Engil México have been considered insolvent. The proposals were under the limit of P$6.5 billion (around US$380 million), Omega Corporacion - led consortium bid for P$5 billion while Mota-Engil México bid for P$4.217 billion.

The preferred bidder would be responsible for the design, build, finance, operation and maintenance (DBFOM) of the new road during the 30 year concession period.

The road PPP project involves the construction of a new 9.5 km elevated highway that will connect the north part of Mexico city with the México-Pachuca road. The highway will have four lanes in each direction.

OHL decided to drop out from the tender process in July after sources made public audiotapes that suggested OHL got insider information related to the highway contract.

Other firms that also dropped off the tender process were: Controladora de Operaciones de Infraestructura, Sacyr Concesiones México, Promotora del Desarrollo de América Latina, Constructora y Edificadora GIA+A, and a consortium led by Promotora y Desarrolladora Mexicana and China Harbour Engineering Company México.
