HCM City to choose consultant for metro project in December

 

The HCM City Urban Metro Authority will open a tender round in December to find the consultant for the city�s first metro project linking Ben Thanh Market in District 1 and Suoi Tien Park in District 9.

 

The authority is preparing bidding procedures for submission to the city government in November. If the plan is approved, the authority will organize an international bidding round in December to select the consultant for the metro project.

 

The US$73-million consulting package is the most important bidding package of the Ben Thanh � Suoi Tien metro project.

 

In related news, the consulting firm MVA is collecting figures and technical standards for the second metro route from Ben Thanh Market to Tham Luong Bridge and the third route from Ben Thanh to Mien Tay Coach Station.

 

The geological survey for the two projects will be tendered in August and carried out in September to provide data for the project consulting board.

 

At a recent meeting, HCM City Chairman Le Hoang Quan and Vice Chairman Nguyen Huu Tin urged relevant State agencies to soon complete site clearance and compensation for the Ben Thanh � Suoi Tien metro project and other two major infrastructure projects � the HCM City � Long Thanh � Dau Giay Highway and the road linking Tan Son Nhat Airport, Binh Loi Bridge and the outer beltway.
