The Ministry of Public Works and Transportation begins the process of preparing a feasibility study for the Train of the Pacific

The Ministry of Public Works (MOP) invited national and international companies to participate in the process to prepare the feasibility study, basic engineering, and technical structure of the Tren del Pacífico.

The MOP indicated to interested companies that they can download the bases from the site, from 00:00 on February 22, 2022 until 11:59 p.m. on March 31, 2022.

The reception of offers will take place at the Institutional Contracting and Procurement Management (GACI) of the Road Conservation Fund (FOVIAL) on April 22, 2022, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 a.m.

The government indicated that the Tren del Pacífico project is key to the positioning of El Salvador as an international logistics center and will lay the foundations for a railway network that connects Central America and Mexico.

It also aims to improve trade flows, land transport safety, road load and greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate the impact of climate change in the country.
