Five international consortia are interested in being awarded the project of the New Central Highway – “Daniel Alcides Carrión”which is awaiting the approval of its Final Profile Review Report, reported the French Government’s Project Management Office (PMO).
As recalled, the French country took over the project in 2021 through a Government-to-Government (G2G) agreement, after the need to modernize this central artery of the country was decreed in 2017.
Among its first steps, France discarded an initial route proposal submitted by the Junín Regional Government, due to multiple design problems. That plane cost the Peruvian State S/7 million.
Instead, he released his own “green corridor“, which starts on the same Central Highway at the height of Ate Vitarte (Lima) and then returns to it in Pachacaca (Yauli), to unite the cities of Lima and La Oroya in 2 hours and a half for smaller vehicles, and 3 for heavy vehicles.
In dialogue with La República, PMO Vías pointed out that there are 5 large international consortiums interested in being awarded the 185-kilometer road: one Japanese-English, one Spanish-American and another Colombian, of which it was possible to know.
In the same way, the agency reported that between July-August 2023 and the end of 2024 the final engineering study will be seen to start the works in February-March 2025. The work would be ready in the first quarter of 2031.
