After the coronavirus epidemic, the countdown for the first giant budget tender started. The General Directorate of Highways affiliated to the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure will bid on June 163 for the construction and operation of the 11-kilometer-long Aydın-Denizli Highway.
According to the news of Olcay Aydilek from Habertürk; “The process could not be completed because the conditions stipulated for the Aydın-Denizli highway project, which had been tendered twice before, were not met. A new tender for the project will be held on Thursday, June 11. The project, which is 650-700 million Euros in size, will be implemented through the build-operate-transfer (BOT) method. The project consists of 140 km of highway and 23 km of connection road. After the Ankara-Niğde highway, the 1915 Çanakkale Bridge, the tolls in the Aydın-Denizli tender will be determined in euros instead of dollars. Domestic and foreign companies show interest in the project. It is stated that Chinese companies follow the project much more closely.
EURO PERIOD IN THE PASSAGE GUARANTEE
The General Directorate of Highways, Yavuz Sultan Selim, implemented with the BOT method, has guaranteed a vehicle pass through "dollars" on the bridges and highways of Northern Marmara, Osmangazi and Istanbul-Izmir. The dollar has increased rapidly. The government's burden on the payment of guarantees has become heavy.
Recently, euro is preferred to new projects instead of dollars. Following the Ankara-Niğde highway, the 1915 Çanakkale Bridge, the vehicle-pass guarantee payments in the Aydın-Denizli project will also be calculated in euros. In this context, it is expected that the tenders of other projects that will be on the agenda in the following days will be made in euro.
