Contracts finalised for the Guadalajara–Colima motorway in Mexico
The Mexican Guadalajara-Colima motorway, administered and supervised by Ineco, now has new agents in charge of the operation, maintenance and remodelling of the road. Banobras (Banco Nacional de Obras y Servicios Públicos de México) has awarded these jobs to two business consortiums, which will be co-ordinated by Ineco, as contract administrator for the Mexican company.
Also, Ineco, along with its partners in the contract, has supported Banobras throughout the bidding process, from drawing up the specifications to monitoring, evaluation and the final decision.
In 2011, Ineco won the 14-year contract, worth around 37 million euros, to supervise the concession of this 148 km stretch of road, which crosses two Mexican states and forms part of the Manzanillo -Tampico corridor. The motorway, which has alternating free and toll sections, is currently being widened, works which are also being directed by Ineco. The company currently has a team of 24 people in Guadalajara and Mexico City, as well as support personnel onsite.
With these latest awards Banobras completes the rollout of its new concession model for the motorway.
