Chile starts construction of US$270mn rail bridge

A US$267mn rail bridge across Chile’s Biobío River (Biobío region) is expected to open late 2025.

Spanish firm Sacyr started works on Saturday. The 1.9km bridge will replace one that's been in use since 1889. Works include a 320m tunnel at one side of the river, Diario Concepción reported.

The bridge is among the most important infrastructure projects in the region.

The head of state-owned rail operator EFE Sur, Juan Antonio Carrasco, was quoted as saying that the new bridge will also boost efforts to extend the local Biotren service to Lota municipality.
