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.

  • Chile's health ministry plans to build or revamp 14 hospitals for US$2.52bn in the first half of 2015, La Tercera newspaper reported. Three will be built through concessions, and the rest with public funds Plans include the construction of two new hospitals, one in northern Tarapacá region (I) and the second one in southern La Araucanía region (IX), and a full revamp of another 12. The list includes Salvador-Geriátrico, Santiago Occidente and Antofagasta hospitals, which have been awarded under concession. "These are new projects," health undersecretary Angélica Verdugo said, quoted by La Tercera. The government plans to build or revamp 60 hospitals for US$4bn over the next four years, adding 2.5Mm2 and 10,873 beds to the public hospital network. President Michelle Bachelet has promised to build 20 new hospitals, leave 20 more under construction by 2018 – when she leaves office – and advance technical and engineering studies and public works tendering for 20 more. Hospitals have been in the spotlight since Bachelet took office as the government has criticized concessions in the sector as expensive and inefficient. In six months, the government has cancelled two hospital tenders and withdrawn two other projects about to be awarded from the audit office. However, two further projects – Salvador Geriátrico and Santiago Occidente – were awarded despite health ministry criticism.
