DNIT planning to relaunch Cuiabá beltway tender over "irregularities" (Brazil)
Brazil's transport infrastructure department (DNIT) plans to relaunch a tender to build a 39.6km beltway around Mato Grosso state capital Cuiabá, a DNIT spokesperson told BNamericas.


The city government is currently analyzing the best way to proceed with the project, which has been stalled for four years due to "irregularities," according to the spokesperson.


"According to mayor Francisco Galindo, the outcome of the assessment will be forwarded to DNIT in February," the spokesperson said, declining to provide further details.


The beltway project is budgeted at some 45mn reais (US$26.8mn), and was awarded to local construction company Conspav in 2007. The city government is responsible for managing the contract, as part of an agreement with the federal government.


The city government is now planning to carry out internal investigations into DNIT's accounts. The transport authority, meanwhile, will review the entire project, including its environmental licenses and expropriation proceedings, according to the official.
