Fresh call for bids for Colombo port terminal

The Sri Lanka Ports Authority is calling for fresh tenders for the construction of the South Container Terminal, in the Colombo Port Expansion Project, following allegations of impropriety in the tendering process.

A request for proposals was published on January 31, 2009, almost two years after the Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved a loan of US$300 million loan for the project.

On behalf of the Ports Authority, the Cabinet Appointed Negotiating Committee is calling for bids from international and local firms to design, build, finance, manage and operate a major container terminal to be developed in the new Colombo South Harbour.

The deadline for bids for the new container terminal is May 19, 2009. ADB country director Dr. Richard Vokes told The Sunday Times that the Colombo Port Expansion Project is Sri Lanka's largest public private partnership project.
