Three bidders are competing in a tender launched by Brazil's national transport infrastructure department (DNIT) to build a 606mn-real (US$366mn) bridge in Santa Catarina state's Laguna city, a DNIT spokesperson told BNamericas, confirming press reports.

A consortium formed of construction company Camargo Corrêa, M Martins and Construbase offered the lowest bid of 597mn reais, online news source Engeplus reported.

Consortium Nova Ponte, which included construction firms OAS and Odebrecht, followed with an offer of 601mn reais. Construction firm Queiroz Galvão is also participating, bidding 602mn reais.

Offers were due to be opened on Friday (Feb 25). The results will be published in the country's official gazette.
