24 in for Philippines' Laguna Dike

Several international firms are among a list of 24 teams to have bought bid documents for the Laguna Lakeshore Expressway Dike in the Philippines.

Vinci Concessions, Leighton Contractors and Macquarie Capital Securities have all bought the pre-qualification documents for the deal, alongside regular national firms such as Metro Pacific Tollways, San Miguel Corporation and Ayala Land.

Eighteen other firms have also registered their interest in the project, including GT Capital Holdings, LT Group, Megaworld Corporation and Aboitiz Equity Ventures.

The submission of bid documents had originally been slated for October, but has now been pushed back to 14 January 2015. Issuance of bidding documents will now occur on 4 February with the deadline for bid submissions still set for 6 July 2015.
