Region VIII govt to begin studies for Concepcion tram (Chile)
Chile's southern region VIII is set to receive some 7.5bn pesos (US$15.4mn) for transport and connectivity projects, according to regional governor Jacqueline van Rysselberghe.


Some 300mn pesos will be used to carry out feasibility studies for a tram system in regional capital Concepcion, the regional government website reported.


The proposed route would cover more than 5km, linking the city's main train station to Bio Bio university.


Most of the funds will be used to improve roadways, including 5.13bn pesos to repair a stretch of Los Angeles avenue in the city of the same name.


Chile's congress approved some US$800mn in funding for transport projects earlier this month, half of which is allocated to regions outside capital Santiago, BNamericas reported previously.
