Chile re-evaluates two road concessions

Chile is considering awarding concessions for at least two bus corridors worth a combined US$170m.

As part of the capital city’s Transantiago mass transport system, Chile's public works ministry is re-evaluating the feasibility of the concessions.

The first project is the system's Independencia corridor, an 8.1km route that will run along the avenue of the same name. The line requires a US$91m investment, including bus stations and signage, according to Chile’s Ministry of Public Works.

The second project is a 6.4km corridor along Santiago city's Gran Avenida avenue, which will cost $80m including bus stops, secondary roads and other complementary works.
