San Luis to begin US$18mn highway projects (Argentina)
Argentina's San Luis provincial government will invest some 70mn pesos (US$17.8mn) in two highway projects.


The province's public works and infrastructure minister Juan Klush signed a contract with consortium San Luis SAPEM-Alquimat to complete a project on highway Ruta 9, the provincial website reported.


Work involves paving a 26km stretch between the towns of Nogoli and Rio Grande at an estimated cost of 40mn pesos. The project is scheduled to be completed end-July 2011.


The initiative to pave the 42km highway began in 2001, but was abandoned due to the country's financial crisis, said Klush.


The minister also signed a contract with a consortium to carry out work on a new 12km highway to be named 25 de Mayo, the provincial website reported without mentioning the name of the group.


The 30mn-peso highway will connect provincial capital San Luis with La Punta city.
