MTOP launches consultancy tender for national road conservation program (Ecuador)

Ecuador's transport and public works ministry (MTOP) has launched a consultancy tender to help plan a national road infrastructure and conservation program.

The awardee will draw up a geo-referential inventory for the national road network and its infrastructure. The network includes 12 arterial corridors and 46 roads, which add up to some 8,800km.

In addition, the project requires technical studies on roughly 900 bridges, as well as tollbooths, containing walls, service stations, gas stations, tunnels, and more.

The US$1.3mn project is being funded by IDB, which signed a loan agreement with the finance ministry earlier this year to help improve competitiveness and promote social and economic integration.

Bids must be submitted by April 1. The tender is open to companies and consortiums from IDB member countries.

The consultation period will be 11 months.
