The contracts are for maintenance works on roads in various parts of Colombia. Bids have been placed bySolarte Solarte, Conalvias, Construcciones El Condor, Mario Alberto Huertas Cotes and Hidalgo e Hidalgo have submitted their own proposals for these projects. In all there are 16 separate contracts and the work is worth a total of US$1.28 billion but Invias says it needs more time to evaluate the proposals it has received.
