As of December, 98.7% of Chilean infrastructure has recovered its basic functions following damage caused by the 8.8-magnitude earthquake that hit the country's central-southern area in February.
The country's port infrastructure, rural potable water systems, aerodromes and airports are all operating at 100% capacity, according to the public works ministry's (MOP) annual public report.
Road operating capacity has reached 99.7%; canals, reservoirs and drainage networks have reached 98.9%; and bridges 97.6%.
Around 533 earthquake repair contracts are currently being carried out at a cost of US$350mn, while the ministry has a portfolio of 92 contracts totaling US$400mn to be carried out up to 2014.
In 2010, MOP has invested 1.21tn pesos (US$2.58bn) in repairs. The main focus has been on roadworks, which required 563bn pesos.
