Bahamas calls for firms interested in upgrading North Eleuthera airport

The Bahamas government has called for expressions of interest from companies willing to upgrade North Eleuthera International Airport, which serves the northern part of the island of Eleuthera and outlying islands. 

According to tender process BH-L1041 published on the government procurement website, the aim is to build a new air terminal building, a crash fire rescue building and other operational works, including constructing a new parallel runway, new apron, taxiways, runway and safety areas. 

“The existing runway will be re-purposed into use as a parallel taxiway adjacent to the new runway work which will require close coordination with on-going aviation operations,” the document states. 

The outlined works also include construction of an emergency access road for fire truck use, airfield lighting and navaid systems, drainage improvements, infill of low-lying areas and edge slope reprofiling. 

The government says that the project will be transformational and is part of a comprehensive redevelopment program. 

Expressions of interest to prequalify for the Airport Infrastructure Program North Eleuthera International Airport must be submitted by email before November 11. 

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) will provide financing for the project via a loan, so the prequalification process will be conducted in accordance with procedures specified under IDB policy.
