Govt to invest US$250mn in Pando highways (Bolivia)
Bolivia's public works, services and housing ministry (MOPSV) is projecting an investment of US$250mn in highways to link northern Pando department capital Cobija with the Corredor al Norte highway.


Studies are currently underway for the El Porvenir-Puerto Rico-El Sena-Peña Amarilla-El Choro highway stretch, which is expected to be built by 2015, the ministry said in a release.


The ministry also plans to invest US$50mn in the Madre de Dios and Peña Amarilla bridges on the highway stretch during the same period.


MOPSV is scheduled to carry out improvements at Cobija airport between 2011 and 2015, which will require more than US$4.6mn, the report said.


Finally, through the Amazon waterway improvement service Semena, some US$40mn will be spent to dredge a stretch of the Madre de Dios river, as well as improve nautical signage and upgrade ports in the department.
