The initiative entails the construction of a 62km highway between the cities of Pamplona and Cucuta, both in the Santander department in the center-north of the country, of which 42km will be a divided highway, with 63km to undergo repairs.

"It is very important to highlight the quality of the bidders, since we have top companies from China, Spain and Israel, and that shows the confidence that these investors have in our country in general and the fourth generation highways in particular," said the ANI president Luis Andrade.
