Eleven design companies from Czech Republic, Germany and France participated at the preliminary market consultation process organized by the Czech railway infrastructure manager, SŽDC on the preparation of the public tender for the Praha – Běchovice – Poříčany high-speed line, part of the Prague – Brno high-speed corridor.
During the market consultation process, SŽDC informed potential suppliers on main items of the order and the model of the considered bids’ evaluation which will be based on applying the Best Value Approach/Best Value Procurement (BVA/BVP) method. This method has as objective to ensure a widest application of the suppliers’ expertise and to provide ordering entities with a possibility to distinguish the suppliers’ experience and quality.
SŽDC says that is interested in the tender’s ordering terms corresponding to the needs of the first high-speed line section implementation in the Czech Republic as much as possible.
The construction of the Praha – Běchovice – Poříčany (Polabí HSL) high-speed line is expected to be launched in 2025.
At the end of September, the contract on geodetic bearing of the Polabí HSL was published in the Register of Contracts. Under a CZK 10 million (EUR 387 thousand) contract, GEFOS will perform the geodesists works until the end of this year and the results will be unveiled in March 2020. Geodetic documents will speed up considerably the elaboration of documentation for a territorial decision.
In April, SŽDC and SNCF signed an agreement to develop the design documentation on high-speed railway projects in Czech Republic.
