Rehabilitation of the Little Dix Hill Road in East End, Tortola is now open to tender, paving the way for some much-needed attention to that thoroughfare.
According to an invitation to tender document from the Recovery & Development Agency (RDA), the project will be funded through the government’s $65 million loan from the Caribbean Development Bank for hurricane recovery.
The works on the slope stabilization and road rehabilitation project include but are not limited to general site clearance, demolition of the existing section of asphalt and reinforced concrete pavement, construction of three reinforced concrete retaining walls, and construction of 40 meters of reinforced concrete pavement.
Other work such as the construction of 180 meters of reinforced concrete kerb and slipper drains and installing guard rails also form part of the intended workload, the document indicated.
The document said there are several requirements to bid for this project.
Interested bidders should have a minimum of five years’ experience, be familiar with construction contracts, have a minimum of two similar contracts with at least $400,000 per contract that has been “satisfactorily and substantially completed as a prime contractor, joint venture member, management contractor or subcontractor between 1st January 2014 and bid submission deadline.”
“Written applications must be clearly marked: ‘Request for Bidding Documents for the Little Dix Hill – Slope Stabilisation and Road Rehabilitation, along with the name, address and contact information of the bidder for which Bidding Documents are being requested,” the document stated.
“All bids must be accompanied by a bid security in the amount of three per cent of the total bid price. Non-submission of Bid Security will lead to rejection of the proposal,” it added.
Deadline for submissions will be at 10 am on June 29.
