Invias to spend US$166mn on repairs to tertiary road network (Colombia)
Colombia's national roads authority Invias will invest 300bn pesos (US$166mn) in repairs and maintenance on the country's tertiary road network in 2011, an Invias spokesperson told BNamericas.


The 2011 budget for tertiary road repairs is much higher than in previous years, when it reached no more than 160bn pesos, the official said.


Invias has requested that municipal governments carry out studies to determine which roads are a priority in terms of productivity. The authority will use the results to decide where to begin work.


The results of the studies are expected to be ready in December so work can begin in early 2011, the official said.
