Elevated highway: Govt. accepts unsolicited proposal from Chinese company

By Namini Wijedasa

The Government has accepted an unsolicited proposal from China Harbour Engineering Company (Ltd) for the elevated expressway from Athurugiriya to New Kelani Bridge via Rajagiriya — a project for which bid documents had already been finalised to call an open tender.

The CHEC bid was directed via the Board of Investment (BOI) and discussions are underway, the Highways Ministry Secretary has told media. However, a three-volume Request for Proposals comprising at least 300 pages each was earlier drawn up with the aim of attracting prospective bidders on a level playing field.

Note 

Hook or crook government should move on and implement projects to generate employment and material sales WTC for the benefit of the country

It is high time we forget the bureaucracy and try to find funds to continue to build  the infrastructure in the country
