Rijkswaterstaat, the Dutch contracting authority for PPP infrastructure projects, has launched a tender process for the A6 "Almere Havendreef - Almere East" PPP project.
The project involves the upgrade and redevelopment of the road from 2 x 2 to 4 x 2. The project will include the design, build, finance and maintenance (DBFM) of the road for a period of 20 years.
The contract value is estimated at €30 million (US$32.56 million).
Interested parties must submit their request to participate on or before 8 April 2015.
The A6 highway runs over 100 kilometers in length and it connects the A1 motorway at interchange Muiderberg with the A7 motorway at interchange Joure. The A6 motorway, of which the largest part is located in the province of Flevoland, is the shortest route between the city of Amsterdam and most parts of the northern provinces of Friesland and Groningen.
Last month Keersluis Limmel Company (KLC) reached financial close for the Limmel Lock PPP project on the Juliana Canal in southern Netherlands. The project is the first project of the PPP sea locks programme in the Netherlands. It is also the first dike in the world to be developed and operated thought a PPP scheme.
