Between January and July 2022, investments in transportation infrastructure reached US$325.85 million, reported the Supervision and Control Management of the Supervisory Body for Investment in Transportation Infrastructure for Public Use (Ositrán) in its monthly report.

The greater dynamism of the investments was reflected in the infrastructure of the Metro with US$116.3 million executed for Line 2 of the Lima and Callao Metro; followed by the highway sector with US$100 million; the port sector with US$82.3 million and airports with capital of US$27.2 million.

The accumulated investment in transportation infrastructure made through the Public-Private Association (PPP) mechanism as of July this year thus totaled US$10.311 billion, which represented 62% of the total investment commitments of the concessionaires.

Regarding the level of progress – accumulated investments versus investment commitments – road infrastructure has reached 95%, followed by capital in ports at 63.4%, railways and lines 1 and 2 of the Lima Metro with 51.7%, and airports with 22.5%.


Ositrán reported that the investments counted in July reached US$37.2 million, supported mainly by the capital for the Jorge Chávez International Airport with the execution of US$17.4 million.

The second sector that led the investments made was highways with US$15.2 million. The IIRSA Norte (Paita-Yurimaguas), IIRSA Sur Section 4 (Azángaro-Inambari) and IIRSA SUR Section 5 (Ilo, Matarani-Azángaro) highways stood out for the execution of additional, accessory and complementary works.

Ports ranked third in investments with US$ 3.1 million in July, highlighted by the capital of the New Container Terminal for Muelle Sur del Callao. For its part, the amount of investments in the railways and Lima Metro amounted to US$1.5 million, driven by the works on Line 2.

Ositrán is supervising 32 concession contracts that include 16 national highways, 18 airports, 8 ports, 2 railways, lines 1 and 2 of the Lima Metro and a waterway.
