The Department of Transportation (DOTr) and Cebu Port Authority (CPA) on May 3 rebid for the third time the P336-million contract to construct a new roll-on/roll-off (Ro-Ro) facility at San Fernando Port in south Cebu following two previous failed biddings.

In a statement, CPA said four contractors from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao participated in the rebidding of the project, which has a budget of P336.115 million funded by DOTr.

The contractors that submitted their bids are F. Gurrea Construction Inc., Hi-tone Construction and Development Corp., Premium Megastructures Inc., and the joint venture of RCDG Construction Corp., BSP & Company Inc. and Great Swiss Metal Builders Corp.

Based on the bidding invitation published on April 14, 2021, the lowest eligible bidder will have to demolish the dilapidated pier and construct a new Ro-Ro port facility at San Fernando port.

Once complete, the new facility will form part of DOTr’s Central Spine Roro Route Project, aimed at ensuring RoRo facilities are in place to serve needs of the trade and tourism sectors and maintain inter-island connectivity.

The new port facility in south Cebu will accommodate vessels plying from San Fernando, Cebu to Tubigon and Jagna Ports in Bohol, to the municipalities of Mambajao and Mahinog in Camiguin and then finally stop at harbors in Municipality of Balingoan and Cagayan de Oro City in Misamis Oriental.
