Philippines Government has allocated 2.5 billion for the construction of a 2.9-hectare structure that will replace the interim terminal of provincial buses along the Manila-Cavite Expressway.

The Department of Transportation and Communications (DoTC) has just commenced bidding for the construction of the Integrated Transport System (ITS) Project – Southwest Terminal in the Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA) property in Paranaque City. This is part of the 7.7-billion ITS project that the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) Board has approved in November.

Part of the three-terminal ITS system, the Southwest terminal is envisioned to connect commuters from Cavite and Batangas to urban transportation systems such as the Light Rail Transit (LRT) line 1, city buses, taxis and other public utility vehicles plying routes in Metro Manila.

According to the DoTC Bids and Awards Committee (BAC), the project covers the financing, design and construction of passenger terminal building, arrival and departure bays, public information system, ticketing and baggage handling facilities and park-ride facilities. The winning contractor will also operate and maintain the terminal for a period of 35 years.

The project will be implemented using a Build-Transfer-Operate arrangement and will be bided out through public-private partnership (PPP).

Interested bidders can avail of the bid documents worth 150,000 starting January 10. Only bidders who availed of the bid documents can participate in the pre-bid conference on February 10.

To qualify to bid for the project, the DOTC BAC said bidders should comply with legal, technical and financial capability requirements. The deadline for submission and opening of bid documents is May 15, 2014.

Aside from the terminal in Paranaque City, government will bid out projects to construct centralized bus terminals within the Food Terminal Inc. complex in Taguig City and in a soon-to-be-determined area in Quezon City.

The ITS is an offshoot of President Aquino's Executive Order 67, signed in February 21, 2012. The President has instructed the DoTC to head the agencies that will put up central bus terminals in the north, south and southwest of Metro Manila for provincial buses.

The operation of ITS terminals is seen as a significant move to decongest Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA).

The winning bidder will finance, design, construct, operate and maintain the project for a period of 35 years. – With report from Tempo and Rappler.com
