Lima to open US$22mn bypass in early 2011 (Peru)
The government of Peruvian capital Lima expects construction of a new bypass at the intersection of Carlos Izaguirre avenue and the Panamericana Norte highway will be completed in early 2011.


The project is costing some 60mn soles (US$21.5mn), state news agency Andina reported.


Work on the bypass, which began eight months ago, is 80% complete, according to the city government's technical manager, Humberto Guzman.


Construction of the southern platform has begun and work on the northern platform will begin in the next week, Guzman said, adding that engineers and builders will work double shifts to meet the deadline.


A 90mn-sol elevated highway connecting Tomas Valle avenue with the Panamericana Norte is also scheduled to be completed in early 2011, Guzman said.
