  1. Kyrgyz Republic has applied for financing from the Asian Development Bank toward the cost of the CAREC 1 and 3 Connector Road Project, Phase 2 – Additional Financing. Part of this financing will be used for payments under the Contract[s] named above. Bidding is open to bidders from eligible source countries of the ADB.

 

  1. The Ministry of Transport and Roads of the Kyrgyz Republic (“the Employer”) invites sealed bids from eligible Bidders for the Rehabilitation Works and 5-years of Performance-Based Maintenance Services for:

  • LOT 2 – Section 2A Kochkor — Epkin Road (km 62+400 -km 89+500).

 

  1. The Works Contract for Lot 1 will contain the requirement for the Contractor to arrange for and carry out a Design-Build component for a new automated, railway crossing of the main road to replace the existing manually operated facility. A specific Pay Item for this work is included in the Bill of Quantities for which the Bidder must provide a bid price. This is to be based on the General Requirements and Special Specifications provided by the Railway Company [in Section 6 of the main Bid Documents]. The Contractor must subsequently prepare an appropriate “Design-Build” contract to be signed with an approved sub-Contractor for undertaking the specialized work in parallel with the main road Works Contract.

 

  1. As a condition of the approval of the Initial Environmental Examination reports, measures to protect relics of major archaeological interest are to be included in the works. This is necessary to prevent damage from impact and vibration effects during the construction and the future operational stages. The Contractor shall appoint to his team, a suitably qualified archaeologist[s] to do pre-construction surveys and to monitor the works. It is expected that this will lead to modified excavation and compaction techniques in the localized sensitive areas.

 

  1. The overall Rehabilitation Works contract period is 24 months, to be followed by a 60-month Performance Based Maintenance Services component of the road works. However, maintenance of the railway crossing facility will be taken over by the Railway Company at the end of the required defects notification period for that component.

 

  1. International competitive bidding will be conducted in accordance with ADB’s Single-Stage Two Envelope bidding procedure and is open to all Bidders from eligible countries as described in the Bidding Documents.
