The agency has published draft documents for the new railroad concession between Açailândia in the state of Maranhão and the Port of Vila do Conde, in the state of Pará.

A public consultation will now be carried out on the $1.5bn deal, which will see the development of 477km running between the two regions.

Prospective bidders have until 1 April to respond to the consultation.
