MANILA – The government is laying the groundwork for the bidding of the second transport terminal in the south of Metro Manila.

In a general bid bulletin, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) set a November 4 deadline for submission of qualification documents for the P4-billion Integrated Transport System (ITS) South Terminal Project.

Five groups already bought bid documents for the project, including San Miguel Corp, Ayala Land Inc (ALI), Filinvest Land Inc (FLI), Megawide Construction Corp and Datem Construction.

The project will be located near the Food Terminal Inc, the development contract for which ALI earlier bagged.

The project will connect passengers coming from the provinces of Laguna and Batangas to other urban transport systems, such as the future North-South Commuter Rail, city buses, taxis and other public utility vehicles that serve the inner Metro Manila.

The terminal will include a passenger terminal building, arrival and departure bays, public information systems, ticketing and baggage holding facilities and park-ride facilities.

The winning bidder will build, operate and manage the said terminal for a concession period of 35 years.

The first transport terminal for Metro Manila is the P2.5 billion ITS Southwest Terminal Project, which built rise on a 2.9-hectare area. The terminal will connect passengers coming from Cavite to other urban transport systems, such as city buses, taxis and other public utility vehicles that serve the inner Metro Manila, as well as the future LRT1 South Extension.

The ITS-Southwest Terminal will include a passenger terminal building, arrival and departure bays, public information systems, ticketing and baggage handling facilities and park-ride facilities.

The Public Private Partnership Center earlier said 12 companies had expressed interest to join the auction, namely, Ayala Corp, ALI, D.M. Wenceslao and Associates Inc, Egis Projects Philippines, Expedition Construction Corp, FLI, Megawide, Metro Pacific Tollways Corp, Robinsons Land Corp, SMC, States Properties Corp, and Vicente T. Lao Construction.

The DOTC had set the submission of bid proposals for the ITS-Southwest PPP this month.
