MTOP to spend US$90mn on Tacuarembó, Durazno infra projects (Uruguay)

Uruguay's transport and public works ministry (MTOP) plans to spend some US$90mn in the next five years on road and other infrastructure projects in departments Tacuarembó and Durazno, public works minister Enrique Pintado said during a visit to Tacuarembó.

Tacuarembó will receive US$64mn of the total, with Durazno receiving US$26mn, MTOP said in a release.

Maintenance works have already begun on Tacuarembó's highways 5, 6, 26, 31 and 43 as well as expansion works on various bridges.

MTOP is also carrying out rail improvements in the central-northern department. A rail line joining department capital Tacuarembó with Tambores is due to be completed shortly, and the Pintado-Rivera stretch will be completed in July, Pintado said.
