11 bids received for Barra transport project

The government has received a total of 11 bids competing to build the Barra transport hub project – a 3-storey underground complex of bus stops and car parks for vehicles, buses and tourist coaches connected to the light rapid transit (LRT) station to be established in the district, the Transport Infrastructure Office announced yesterday. The hub, located next to the Customs Service Headquarters near Sai Van Bridge, is to embrace some 10,000 square metres of green space on the roof of the complex. The Office has also announced that the design of the Barra LRT station – the station that will connect to that of Taipa – is still being reworked, and that the public tender for the construction of the Barra station is expected to be ready by the end of this year.
