Entre Rios to begin work on US$443mn Parana-Concordia highway by year-end (Argentina)
Argentina's northeastern Entre Rios province aims to begin upgrading the Parana-Concordia highway by year-end, a local government spokesperson told BNamericas.


Tenders are currently underway to widen and improve the 280km highway. Bids for the project, which is expected to cost some 1.75bn pesos (US$443mn), will be opened September 28.


"The bids will be studied by an evaluating committee, which is expected to make a decision in approximately 45 days," the official said.


The project was divided into four sections, which will likely be awarded to different companies, according to the official.


The first section is budgeted at 680mn pesos, the second at 520mn pesos and the fourth stretch at 540mn pesos. Works on these stretches is expected to finish within 33 months.


Improvements to the third section will cost 204mn pesos, and are scheduled to be completed within 24 months.


The highway connects Entre Rios' capital Parana in the west of the province with Concordia city in the east.
