Colombia’s state-owned urban development institute (IDU) received two bids by Wednesday’s deadline for a contract to build the US$70mn San Cristóbal cable car in Bogotá.

Construction is scheduled to last 30 months. The value of the bids was not disclosed but the latest project cost estimate is 342bn pesos (US$70mn), up nearly 10% in pesos on the previous projection, according to IDU.
