ZAGREB, January 23, 2018 – The State Commission for Supervision of Public Procurement Procedures has stated on its web site that it has received an appeal from the Strabag company against the Croatian Road public company (“Hrvatske Ceste or HC”) operator’s decision to select China Road and Bridge Corporation for the first-stage construction of Pelješac Bridge and access roads. Strabag was one of the three bidders, and the third one was a consortium of the Italian Astaldi and Turkish IC Ictas.

Of the three bids received for the public procurement, the bid by China Road and Bridge Corporation, CCCC Highway Consultants, CCCC Second Highway Engineering and CCCC Second Harbour Engineering, was selected with a price of 277 million euro (without VAT) or a final price of 346 million euro with VAT and a completion date of 36 months, as the most favourable bid, the road operator stated on 12 January.

Astaldi and IC Ictas submitted a bid of 340 million euro (without VAT) or 425 million euro including VAT and Strabag’s bid amounted to 349 million without or 437 million euro with VAT.

A deadline for submitting appeals started running on the day when the HC announced its choice of the best bid.

The construction of the 2.4 kilometre long and 55 metre high four-lane bridge should be completed within 36 months of the start of construction.
