The project, also known as Troncal Magdalena 1, is intended to provide a 260km divided highway from Puerto Salgar to Barrancabermeja, directly benefitting seven municipalities in Santander department. 

The works involve the construction of a second roadway and connections, and improvement and rehabilitation of the existing roadway.
