Firms bid for Bahrain road deal

The Mina Salman interchange project in Bahrain has received bids from five international companies.

South Korea's Sungwon, Italy's Federici Stirling SPA and Bahrain's Nass Contracting, Hafeera Contracting and Ahmed Mansoor Al A'ali have submitted bids for the Mina Salman interchange project in Bahrain.

According to the Bahrain Tender Board, Hafeera submitted the lowest bid of US $59 million (BHD23 million), while Sungwon bid the highest at $65 million.

The project is part of the Ministry of Works and Housing's $689.6 million road spending plan announced in May last year.

The money has been put towards a comprehensive development of the kingdom's road network, including the construction of new roads, highways and flyovers.

Projects include the rebuilding of the Sitra causeway, which is being carried out by Malaysia's Gamuda, the conversion of Bahrain map junction into a two-level junction, and the redevelopment of Shaikh Isa bin Salman Highway.

Work on the Bahrain Map junction and the Shaikh Isa bin Salman Highway, which is being done by Nass Contracting, will take 18 months to complete.
