Argentine province San Luis' government has launched construction of the Corredor Vial Central road corridor in provincial capital San Luis.
The 12km road is expected to cost 85mn pesos (US$15.5mn), which will be covered by the provincial and municipal governments.
The project will take eight months to complete and will be built over a former railway that has been abandoned for the last 19 years, according to a provincial release.
Works will include building bridges, roundabouts, green areas, and rainwater drainage networks to reduce floods by 40%, said San Luis governor Alberto Rodríguez Saá.
The president of the Banco Provincia group, Santiago Montoya, signed an agreement with Buenos Aires province's production minister, Martín Ferré, to design a port insurance coverage plan.
The insurance policy is expected to cover ports' operations and Buenos Aires' free trade areas, the provincial government said in a release.
The agreement will allow the company to provide consultancy services and guidance regarding risks in port activity.
Chilean transport firm Austral Broom, which operates in southern Tierra del Fuego province, will add a new ferry to its fleet of ships providing passenger and cargo transport services in the Primera Angostura area on the border with Argentina.
The ferry is due to become operative by year-end, according to a release from Argentina's Tierra del Fuego province government.
Tierra del Fuego governor Fabio Marinelo met with and Austral Broom's general manager, Alejandro Kusanovic, to discuss the ferry and other transport issues, including a future navigation agreement to open a commercial maritime route connecting Chile's Puerto Williams district in region XII with Tierra del Fuego's Ushuaia district.
