Autopista del Maipo invertirá US$177 mills. en terceras pistas

La concesionaria de la vía que une Santiago con Talca espera agregar un carril por sentido entre Puente Maipo y bypass Rancagua antes del 2020.

Por Julián Mazzucco

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.

  • Brazil's state-run energy giant Petrobras has tested a new fertilizer that it says could drastically increase agricultural crop efficiency. The product has already been successfully trialed at Petrobras' Fafen fertilizer plant in the southern state of Paraná, the Rio de Janeiro-based company said in a statement. According to Petrobras, the fertilizer encourages crop development by reducing losses from the degradation of urea from 70% to 20%. "[This] increases the availability of nitrogen present in the urea, which is a vital element for plants," Petrobras said. The new product is expected to particularly benefit the sugarcane, corn and citric fruit industries. Further tests will be conducted in the coming months before the product is considered for commercialization, Petrobras said.

  • Telefónica has received final regulatory approval for its acquisition of German telco E-Plus after agreeing to the conditions imposed on the deal by the European Commission. The European antitrust body agreed to the 5.0bn-euro (US$6.57bn) acquisition in July but said that Telefónica must sell up to 30% of the merged company's network capacity to between one and three MVNOs before the acquisition is completed. In the course of the merger clearance process, Telefónica agreed to sell 20% of its mobile network capacity using a bitstream access model to German operator Drillisch, with the opportunity to "extend up to an additional 10%," the Spanish telco said in a release. ACTION ON TWO FRONTS Telefónica has announced several major acquisitions in recent months as it aims to strengthen its position in core markets while, at the same time, divesting non-core assets both in Europe and Latin America. As well as its E-Plus acquisition, Telefónica recently paid 725mn euros for a controlling stake in Spanish pay TV production and distribution services player Distribuidora de Televisión Digital (DTS). In Latin America, the company caused a stir in largest market Brazil by announcing its intention to acquire fixed operator GVT for some 7.45bn euros. Speculation has also been rife in recent months as to what acquisition options may be open to the Spanish operator in Mexico following the telecom reform legislation which recently came into effect there. Telefónica's net debt was 43.8bn euros as of the end of June, and the company has committed to reducing net debt to below 43bn by the end of this year.
