Fernández opens work on US$493mn Entre Ríos-Corrientes highway expansion (Argentina)

Argentine President Cristina Fernández has kicked off work on the upgraded national highway 14 connecting Entre Ríos and Corrientes provinces, according to a presidential release.

Work on the 228km highway, linking provincial capitals Paraná in the west and Concordia in the east, is budgeted at 1.99bn pesos (US$493mn) and includes expanding the route from two to four lanes.

The project is being carried out in eight sections by consortiums Pietroboni-Panedille, Homaq-Rovella Carranza, JCR-Coarco, Decavial-Esuco-Perales Aguiar and Vialco-Alquimac-Burgward, as well as construction firms José Cartellone and Iecsa.

Five stretches, some 343km long, will run through Entre Ríos and another three sections, covering 153km, will run through Corrientes.

The modernized highway will benefit cities Villa Paranacito, Ceibas, Gualeguaychú, Colonia Elía, Colón, San José, Villa Elisa, Concordia, Federación, and Monte Caseros.
