MOP planning tender for Puertecillo beach access road studies (Chile)

Chile's public works ministry (MOP) plans to launch a consultancy tender for a project to build an access road to connect Litueche in central southern region VI with Puertecillo beach, regional MOP director Moisés Saravia Ruiz told BNamericas.

"We have to study and define the best technical, economic and environmental options to access the Puertecillo beach," Saravia said.

MOP's engineering department is currently working on the project's development phase and a tender will take at least a month to launch.

Four or five options are under consideration, so the final length of the roadway has yet to be determined, Saravia added. The roadway will be accessible by all types of vehicles and will be approximately 6km in length, according to MOP documents.

MOP is carrying out the project as part its 31.2bn-peso (US$66.1mn) budget for highway works in the region.

The ministry has allocated 58% of the budget to maintenance for existing highways, the regional MOP office said in a release. The remaining funds will be split between new projects and repairs to highways that were damaged by the February 2010 earthquake.

The region VI office plans to carry out seven strategic projects as part of its 2030 highway development plans. These include works on highways Ruta 5, Ruta 66, Ruta 90, Ruta H-30, Ruta Intermedia, Ruta Costera and Corredor Bioceánico.
