MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – The group overseeing the construction of Mexico City’s new $13 billion airport said on Tuesday July 24 it has suspended four contract tenders while the country’s president-elect decides on the project’s future.
President-elect Andres Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) has said the project is too expensive and full of corruption.
AMLO stated after his landslide victory on July 1, that he would hold a public consultation on whether to scrap, concession out or continue the project after reviewing the details.
Grupo Aeroportuario de la Ciudad de Mexico (GACM) said on Tuesday July 24 it had suspended the tenders indefinitely, including one for a fuel distribution network and another for lighting systems for the runways.
GACM said current contracts would be honored and that the building of the airport would continue.
