Govt to begin US$800mn Sante Fe, Corrientes highway stretch (Argentina)
Argentina's Santa Fe governor Hermes Binner and his Corrientes counterpart Horacio Colombi have approved the executive projects for construction of a highway stretch connecting the two provinces.


Requiring an investment of over US$800mn, the highway will connect Corrientes capital Goya with Santa Fe city Reconquista, Santa Fe's provincial website reported.


The 41km stretch will cross the Los Amores, Parana Mini and Parana rivers and includes 16 bridges totaling 4km. Travel time between the two cities is currently about eight hours via a 500km route crossing the General Belgrano bridge.


National highway concessions control authority Occovi carried out the executive projects for the highway, which will take an estimated four years to complete.


The governors have asked the national government to launch a tender for the project as soon as possible.
