Mexico’s tourist development agency Fonatur announced on Friday that Seville-based Avzi, its Mexican subsidiary Construcciones Urales and Naucalpan-based infrastructure specialist Gami Ingenieria e Instalaciones has won the work with a bid of USD 425 million. This was the lowest bid put in by the 16 consortiums bidding for the 172 kilometer section between Calkini in Campeche state and Izamal in Yucatán state.

Construction on this section is due to begin on 25 May, if Mexico’s health authority gives its approval.

The first section of the line was won by a consortium led by Portuguese contractor Mota-Engil in association with China Communications Construction Company and three Mexican partners, for a price of USD 630 million. The second was taken by a team of companies owned or controlled by Mexican industrialist Carlos Slim, led by Spain’s FCC.

The 1,470 kilometer line is being built in five sections. When complete, it will connect tourist destinations and population centres on the Yucatán peninsula.
