Uruguay will spend US$500mn on constructing and repairing roads and highways next year, up from a record US$460mn during 2017 and half that amount last year, said public works and transport minister Víctor Rossi.
On the public-private partnership projects his ministry is planning, Rossi said in a statement that they are advancing "a bit too slow for our taste" but that he expects those works will start in 2019.
Rossi also said that next April he will hold a meeting with all relevant parties in the local civil and commercial aviation sector to define common objectives and strengthen cooperation.
The minister added that by mid-2018 a long-term master plan would be announced for Montevideo port.
