Cusco and Puno are the regions that have the most stopped works

Cusco and Puno are the regions with more abandoned works in the country. According to the National Public Works Information System –Infobras, have 534 and 305 truncated projects, respectively. Poorly done files, arbitrations and corruption complaints are the common causes of the abandonment of these ghost works.

The most emblematic case in Cusco is represented by the Hospital Antonio Lorraine. Its construction began a decade ago and until today it does not see the light. The hospital, in 2012, was entrusted to the Brazilian OAS, immersed in the Lava Jato case. His contract was terminated in 2015 due to delays.

According to Infobras, the project has not yet been released, although the current regional administration has made some progress towards its conclusion. the hospital should cost S / 300 million, but its reference value exceeds S/700 million.

For the president of the Medical Federation, Rodolfo Larota, the cause of this delay is the corruption that is being investigated in various tax files. Former Regional President Acurio and the former first lady, Nadine Heredia, They are investigated for allegedly receiving bribes from the Brazilian firm for this hospital.

The improvement of the Petro Perú pedestrian bridge, the infrastructure maintenance of the Vinocanchon wholesale market, the construction of the Tupac Amaru Higher Technological Institute and the improvement of the Santa Rosa health center, level I-3 in San Sebastián. Other abandoned projects are located in the provinces of La Convención (104), Calca (68) and Chumbivilcas (54). They are works by direct administration in charge of different levels of governments, including the national one. 30% of these works are related to transportation and 22% to education. That is, highways, local roads, trails for vehicles, bridges, construction and improvement of educational institutions.

Hospitals in Puno

The main hospital projects in this region are paralyzed and their completion will take time.

The Infrastructure Management of the Regional Government of Puno, reported that the three most important hospitals are stopped in their execution due to technical and administrative problems generated in the management of the former Governor Agustin Luque.

The Manuel Núñez hospital in Puno is in the process of being seen. Germán Alejo’s administration annulled the contract due to reports from the Comptroller’s Office that warned the Manuel Núñez hospital consortium, made up of Chinese companies, of poor qualifications. The investment reaches almost 330 million. The physical progress is 1.56%, but more than S/. 100 million. Its resumption will take months and for this it will be necessary to reformulate the technical file with deficiencies.

The ilave support hospital is another of the stopped works. Awarded to the Altiplano Consortium, for an amount of 125 million, and despite the fact that this money was spent, the work is only 52% complete. The contract was annulled and there is an arbitration so that the bond letter is not executed. Governor Germán Alejo indicated that the work would be completed by direct administration and a new work completion file would be made. The Maternal and Child Hospital of Juliaca, is another of the projects that has not yet seen the light. It is executed by direct administration from the management of former Governor Juan Luque. 136 million was allocated and there is only an execution of 28.90%. The delay is basically due to the late acquisition of goods and services by the supply office.

The justification to explain the delay

The regional governor of Cusco, Jean Paul Benavente, clarified that many truncated works correspond to local and national governments. He pointed out that the corruption of the previous administrations, the lack of sanitation of the places where the projects were to be carried out, the technical limitations in the local governments, could explain the paralysis of the works.

In Puno, the uncertainty in regional management was a factor that delayed the works. In the last three years there have been three governors. Germán Alejo Apaza is the regional chief. were before Agustin Luque Chayña and Walter Aduviri, both defenestrated by processes with justice.
