By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing (MIDH) is moving to repair roads and drains damaged by last month’s tropical wave.
On Monday the MIDH posted a Pre-Qualification of Contractors notice on social media in which it invites medium-size (BZ$0.5-$2.5 million) and small contractors (BZ $0.5 million or less) interested in carrying out road and drainage restoration works in the Belize, Orange Walk, and Corozal Districts which were affected by the tropical wave on August 17-18, 2022.
“Restoration works proposed in all three districts will vary but will include drainage improvement works with culvert installation, resurfacing and paving of a few roads” said the MIDH notice.
“Interested contractors are encouraged to register and submit pre-qualification information which the MIDH will evaluate based on a set criterion. Based on the findings of the evaluation, contractors will be prequalified for the various types of road restoration works proposed to be funded with the Emergency Funds.”
The MIDH advised contractors that since the proposed works are an emergency measure, submission of the requested information must be sent in by 2:00 pm on Friday, September 9.
Contractors are also advised to register under the following categories: Civil Works/Road Construction, Bridge Construction, Drainage Improvement Works, Tradespersons, and/or Specialist Contractors.
