Northern Marmara Highway construction goes to Ictas-Astaldi

İçtaş-Astaldi Consortium wins bid for Northern Marmara Highway

İçtaş İnşaat Sanayi Ticaret and Italy’s Astaldi consortium won the bid for a part of the Northern Marmara Highway Project, which includes a third bridge over the Bosphorus at yesterday’s tender at the Highway Authority in Ankara at 1:00.

İçtaş İnşaat Sanayi Ticaret-Astaldi Joint Venture and Cengiz İnşaat-Kolin İnşaat-Limak-Makyol İnşaat-kalyon İnşaat Joint Ventures submitted bids for the construction and management of the project. The Salini-Gülermak consortium was omitted from the tender since its proposal envisioned building the legs of bridge in the water, as opposed to land, a project pre-condition.

The initial tender had been held on April 20, where a total of four bids had been received. Mapa İnşaat was subsequently eliminated from the tender due to not having been able to achieve the required 70 points for technical sufficiency.
