The Chilean Ministry of Public Works finalized the call for tenders for the second concession of Route 78 from Santiago to the port city of San Antonio, also known as Autopista del Sol.
The project includes an investment of USD 892 million and a maximum variable term of 30 years. It includes the construction of multiple works along the entire 112 km route, such as the addition of third lanes and connections to other main highways, as well as new bridges, walkways, acoustic screens and service streets, among other structures. The concessionaire that is awarded the work must operate and maintain the route.
The MOP projects that the remodeling will benefit a population close to 1,760,000 people per year.
The receipt of technical and economic proposals for this project is scheduled for July 29. This project is expected to be awarded during the fourth quarter of this year.
The terms of the concession are available on the MOP website here.
