Gran Canaria news | €4.7m investment for GC roads
The Cabildo of Gran Canaria has awarded four contracts for the maintenance of insular roads in a four-year deal worth €4.7m. An additional four, to complete the insular network and amounting to €25m, will be awarded in the coming weeks, according to the island’s president, Antonio Morales.
The president met with the Minister of Public Works, Victor Angel Torres, and the Minister of Finance and Presidency, Pedro Justo Brito to study the current situation of the proceedings initiated in the previous mandate.
After the meeting, the President recalled that island had tendered eight records for the maintenance of insular roads that received an anonymous complaint and legal services detected anomalies in some bids that led to the cancellation of the procedure.
Torres added: “In this next round, again some anomalies that can affect a bid’s ability to win have been detected. So we are studying these and offering companies the opportunity to correct their bids… so that they may not be excluded from the process.”
He continued: “Today we are in the process of analyzing the proposals that have been studied by the services and we are able to say that there are four legally sound projects for adjudication, like the awarded four records, which continue through regulated procedures in the coming weeks.”
The eight contracts cover the maintenance of the entire road network island of Gran Canaria.
