Ecuador to launch US$234mn highway tender this month

Ecuador will launch at the end of the month the call for a US$234mn contract to repair and modernize the Cuenca-Azogues-Biblián highway corridor in the south of the country.

The works will involve the construction of three interchanges, a new southern access to the city of Cuenca – the third biggest in the country – and other improvements.

Oswaldo Aguilar, director of prefeasibility and feasibility studies for concessions at the transport and public works ministry, told BNamericas the tender will include the design, financing, construction, operation and maintenance of the highway infrastructure during a 30-year concession.

Works include installing two toll plazas, one on the current southern access to Cuenca, which in 2019 saw average traffic of 12,883 vehicles a day, and the other on the Cuenca-Azogues section, where traffic averaged 42,620 vehicles a day.
