CBTU launches US$14mn railroad reconstruction tenders in Alagoas, Pernambuco (Brazil)
Brazil's urban rail company CBTU has launched four tenders totaling 23.3mn reais (US$13.9mn) for railroad reconstruction in the northeastern states of Alagoas and Pernambuco, a CBTU spokesperson told BNamericas.


The first three tenders, worth 12.9mn reais, involve works on the 32.1km Maceio railway in Alagoas. Work will include rebuilding various sections of the line, and building the Gustavo Paiva and Lourenço de Albuquerque stations.


Clarifications can be requested up to November 15 and bids must be submitted on November 17.


CBTU has also begun a 10.4mn-real tender to rebuild several sections of its 65.7km Recife railway in Pernambuco, according to the official. Bids are due November 11.


Both railways were severely damaged by the torrential rains that hit Alagoas and Pernambuco in June this year.
