Actualmente, mediante un convenio complementario con el Ministerio de Obras Públicas (MOP), la Autopista del Maipo está llevando a cabo una ampliación a tres pistas por sentido entre el acceso sur a Santiago y el puente Peuco, lo que se denomina tramo dos. 

Se trata de una extensión de 7 kilómetros, que demandará una inversión de US$61 millones.

Pero el plan definitivo es mucho más ambicioso. En el mediano plazo se agregarán dos tramos más con terceras pistas y que, según comentó a PULSO el gerente general de la concesionaria, Miguel Carraco, esperan tener aprobados a mediados de año. 

“Son dos tramo más donde se integraran terceras pistas. El tramo uno (desde Puente Maipo hasta Acceso sur a Santiago) tiene una inversión estimada de UF 1,5 millones (más de US$ 63 millones). El tercero, o sea entre la actual plaza de peaje y el bypass Rancagua, tiene una inversión de UF 1,2 millones (US$ 50,5 millones)”, explicó Carrasco. La inversión de las obras que se están realizando sumadas a las que están en proyecto da un total de unos US$177 millones. 

“Los proyectos de los siguientes tramos de terceras pistas van a estar aprobados a mediados de 2014. Por lo tanto, va a depender de la voluntad de la autoridad de lanzar las licitaciones inmediatamente, de manera de que antes del 2020 podríamos tener el tramo completo con terceras pistas desde el Puente Maipo y bypass Rancagua. Esa sería nuestra aspiración”, agregó Carrasco.

  • Vancouver-based DuSolo Fertilizers received the environmental and operating licenses for its direct application natural fertilizer (DANF) processing facility in Brazil. The licenses require the company to continuously monitor the environmental impact of the facility, including water quality management, dust control, drainage inspection and noise containment. The plant will process the high-grade phosphate discovered at the Santiago target, located 29km from the plant, the company said in a release. DuSolo's processing facility includes crushing and milling circuits, with a capacity of 80,000t/y of DANF. Due to strong demand in the region, the company is planning to expand capacity to 160,000t by 2015. DANF is used alongside the standard nitrogen, phosphate and potash (NPK) blend to compensate for elevated nutrient depletion as a result of heavy tropical rainfalls.

  • Brazil's São Paulo state water utility Sabesp is waiting for permission to extract, if required, 106Bl of deeply settled water – known as "dead volume" water – from the bottom of the local Cantareira basin. Sabesp CFO Rui Affonso made the announcement during a conference call on Tuesday. Sabesp needs the green light from national water agency ANA to carry out the procedure. Serving 9.3mn residents in drought-hit São Paulo's metropolitan region, Cantareira is one of the largest systems of its kind in the world, and the largest managed by Sabesp. As of Wednesday, the system was operating at 12.5% capacity. "While the extraction plan has been approved by state water and electricity department DAEE, we're still discussing the matter with ANA," Affonso said, adding that water pumps for the project would cost around 4mn reais (US$1.77mn). Sabesp is also looking into alternatives to avoid having to execute the extraction plan. Much hinges on the amount of rainfall over the next few months. According to Sabesp precipitation forecasts, Cantareira's water level should start rising in September. Another of the company's plans, to extract dead volume water from its Alto Tiête water reserve system, is at a preliminary state. Only studies are being carried out and extraction from the system is not part of the firm's current action plan, Affonso said. CANTAREIRA If approved, the Cantareira extraction would be the second this year. In May, Sabesp completed an 81mn-real project to extract 183Bl of water. Levels have been dropping ever since.

  • Brazil's transport infrastructure department DNIT has awarded two tenders valued at a total of 886mn reais (US$394mn) to widen federal highway BR-163 in Paraná state. The largest one, priced at 579mn reais, was awarded to a consortium made up of local construction companies Construtora Sanches Tripolini and Maia Melo Engenharia. The group will widen 74km of the highway, according to DNIT procurement documents. The other tender, worth 307mn reais, was won by a consortium of local firms Técnica Viária, Castilho and Urbaniza which will widen 38.9km of the road. The two groups will have 36 months to develop basic plans and carry out civil works for their respective projects, according to a DNIT release. Intersections, overpasses, pedestrian walkways and side roads are also to be built, along with a bridge over the Iguaçu river. BR-163 is one of principal routes for the transport of agricultural goods in the western region of the state.
