BAHRAIN (Metro Rail News): Bahrain’s Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications is ready to finalise the tender for construction of a light railway network spanning around 105 kilometres in next coming month March 2020. The tender was launched on 13th Feb last year.

Spanish consulting company IDOM presented the design in Feb 2018 for Phase-I of the Bahrain Light Metro project. This project is the section of Bahrain’s Urban Transit Network Project (BUTN) network that consists of a total of four metro lines covering a total network of 109 km.

After the evaluation of Bids given by eight global consultancy firms, KPMG was developed as the lowest bidder and chosen for providing consultancy services for Phase-I of the Bahrain Metro Project in November 2019. The Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications had announced the appointment of KPMG as the most economical bidder.

Out of the eight bids taken three companies – Zayani Engineering, KPMG and PriceWaterCoopers – have remained in the race. Bids from Deloitte and Ernst & Young have been discarded, as well as three other bidders.

The consultant is currently providing financial, technical and legal consultancy services to the Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications for the preparation of documents, tender, evaluation and appointment of the preferred bidder for construction.

Whereas the Blue Line will commence from the Juffair suburb and go through the Diplomatic Area before finishing at Isa Town, serving 11 stations.

The two lines will interconnect at the Bab al Bahrain and al Farooq Junction stations.
