CEBU CITY – The rebidding for the P336-million construction of the San Fernando Port project was conducted Monday.
The Department of Transportation (DOTr) and Cebu Port Authority (CPA) conducted the rebidding after the first two biddings went unsuccessful.
At least three construction firms and a joint venture participated in the rebidding for the port project. The port will rise on a 40-hectare area in Barangay Poblacion, San Fernando, Cebu.
According to CPA, bidders were F. Gurrea Construction Inc., Hi-tone Construction and Development Corp., Premium Megastructures Inc., and RCDG Construction Corp./BSP & Company Inc./Grat Swiss Metal Builders Corp. Joint Venture.
“The lowest eligible and responsive bidder will have to conduct demolition of existing dilapidated pier and will conduct a New Roro Port Facility at port San Fernando, Cebu,” the CPA said in a statement.
Once completed, the new Roro port facility will form part of the Central Spine Roro Project (CSRRP) of the DOTr which aims to ensure that Roro facilities are in place to serve the needs of the trade and tourism sector and maintain inter-island connectivity, the CPA added.
The new port facility will accommodate vessels plying from San Fernando, Cebu to Tubigon and Jagna Ports in Bohol, to municipalities of Mambajao and Mahinog in Camiguin and then finally stop at harbors in the municipality of Balingoan and Cagayan de Oro City in Misamis Oriental.
