Ranhill Jawala Consortium will summit a bid for the construction of a 1,216km highway in Algeria.
The bid, which will be submitted to the Algerian government, is a follow-up to the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between the Algerian government and the consortium last month.
Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said the consortium was undertaking a study of the proposed project, costing US$3.2bil, and would submit a formal bid around April.
“This is a follow-up to the MoU signed during Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad's visit to Algeria last month and the bid will include building of tunnels, rest areas and service stations along the highway,” he said.
Samy Vellu said this after a luncheon in Kuala Lumpur with his Algerian counterpart Amar Ghoul, who is on a four-day visit to the country. – Bernama
