RFQ for revived Puerto Rico train P3

11 January 2013 Requests for qualifications (RFQs) are due for a revived $400m commuter train P3 in Puerto Rico.

The city of Caguas is working with the Puerto Rico Department of Transportation on the project, with RFQs due in March for the construction of a commuter line between Caguas and San Juan.

Firms interested in bidding on the project will now be able to respond to the RFQ from 1 February, Caguas’s Oficina del Tren told PPP Bulletin.

The project has been on hold since 2009, after technical proposals were originally revealed in 2007. Under the original framework, the city of Caguas was proposing the deal be financed by the private sector under a design, financing, construction, and operation model.

After completion, the new line is expected to carry 25,000 passengers daily and reduce traffic congestion and air pollution in the region.
