New information campaign to provide details of the Metro contracting model
The features and general terms of the project and the selection process for the construction of the Bogota Metro are to be presented at the Salitre Chamber of Commerce in Bogota from April 23 to 25.
The conferences will include the technical data with which potential national and international stakeholders in the Bogota Metro will be able to know its scope and ask all the questions and make all the comments that they consider necessary to understand the project.
This roadshow, which will present the details of the first Metro line to be built shortly, is organized by Financiera de Desarrollo Nacional (FDN) which is seeking a single concession that includes all civil works, supply of trains and railway systems, as well as its partial financing, operation and long-term maintenance.
According to the FDN in its press release, after conducting a thorough investigation, this is the best model. It states that "(...) it not only favors and streamlines funding, but by enabling the combination of public and private financing, and by incorporating, as provided by the relevant rules, a mixed form of compensation, it allows for a better coordination of the activities and greater control of the processes, aligning incentives to achieve the end result."
