Bolivia's highway authority Administradora Boliviana de Carreteras (ABC), under the direction of the public works, services and housing ministry (MOPSV), is an administratively autonomous institution operating under public law, and is responsible for planning and management of the basic road network, which includes the most important road segments (16,064km), as part of efforts to strengthen the country's decentralization process. Its projects include building the Porvenir-El Chorro, Rurrenabaque-Riberalta, Uyuni-Tupiza and Viacha-Hito IV highways; the Beni II, Madre de Dios and San Buenaventura bridges; and the Incahuasi tunnel. In 2015 the agency signed a contract with China Harzone Industry to build a highway in the country's central lowlands, part of a drive to expand the landlocked Andean country's infrastructure. The 38km divided highway, which will link the city of Cochabamba with Valle Alto by 2017, will help integrate the more remote regions.
