Acciona, a Spanish business group, has secured a nearly 62.4 million euro contract for the construction of the new Cabo Rojo International Airport in Pedernales, Dominican Republic, near the Haitian border.

The project, initiated by the Pro-Pedernales Trust, includes building a 3-kilometer-long runway and taxiways or aircraft parking platforms, according to industry sources. Acciona’s construction division was chosen based on its extensive experience and qualifications among the three prequalified firms.

The contract is expected to be completed in 16 months. Subsequent phases will involve constructing a control tower, fire station, electrical substation, and hydrosanitary plant. Future stages will focus on developing passenger and cargo terminals.
