Garcia opens US$32.4mn Cerro Azul-Chincha highway (Peru)
Peru's President Alan Garcia has officially opened the Cerro Azul-Chincha Baja highway in southern Lima region, the presidential website reported.


The route includes 20.3km of double-lane highway, a 241m bridge over the Cañete river and overpasses, which required a total investment of US$32.4mn.


The highway will improve access to Pisco airport, as well as directly benefit 200,000 residents in Cañete province, Garcia said at the inauguration.


The highway section is part of the 222km Red Vial 6 road network, which is divided into six sections and forms part of the Panamericana highway.


Work on the stretch was carried out by concessionaire CoviPeru, a subsidiary of Ecuador's Hidalgo & Hidalgo. The firm was awarded the 30-year Red Vial 6 concession in 2005.
