Project Details


The improvement project on route 9, also known as the Transchaco route, involves carrying out work over a stretch of the road. The route runs from Asuncion to the Bolivian border and is the main highway connecting the Chaco region with Paraguay's administrative and economic heart. It also provides access to the Pacific coast through Bolivia, Argentina and Chile, which makes it a key corridor for intraregional and global trade. The average traffic is about 1,500 vehicles per day, of which 50% are midsized and heavy trucks. Many segments of RN9 are reaching end-of-useful-life stage, with 45% of the area under intervention needing pavement reconstruction. This adverse situation is pushing up overall transportation costs and travel time, affecting road safety, and hindering the road's prospects to strengthen its stance as a logistics corridor that fosters integration and productivity of Paraguay's eastern strip.
