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.

  • Mexican conglomerate Alfa has increased its interest in Colombia-focused oil producer Pacific Rubiales to 18.95%, the latter said in a statement sent to Colombia's financial regulator Superfinanciera. Alfa has been incrementally upping its interest in Pacific Rubiales this year. In late August the group held a reported 17.1% stake. Takeover rumors have flourished in the wake of Alfa's stock purchases. Under Canadian law, where Pacific Rubiales shares trade, acquiring 20% or more of a company typically triggers an automatic public tender offer. Pacific Rubiales has no knowledge of any sales agreement with Alfa, the release said. Alfa has repeatedly denied intentions to acquire Pacific Rubiales and says its share increases are for investment and not strategic purposes. The group also just announced a capital increase and has said it aims to raise its Pacific Rubiales interest to 20%. For its part Pacific Rubiales has previously stated it is seeking partners for entering Mexico's oil and gas market and last week signed an exploration MOU with Mexican state oil firm Pemex.

  • Chile plans to launch a tender for the construction of the US$600mn multi-purpose Punilla reservoir before year-end and award the project in 2015. That's according to a presentation given by public works ministry (MOP) concessions advisor Cristina Holuigue during the 5th BNamericas South America Infrastructure Summit, being held this week in Bogatá. A presentation slide showed that MOP will receive technical and economic proposals in the first quarter of 2015 and award the project in the third. In February, MOP started the prequalification process for bids for Punilla, a project likely to be jointly financed by the government, local farmers and a private concessionaire. The Punilla project is designed to meet the water needs of farmers in the Ñuble river basin, doubling the amount of irrigated land to over 60,000ha. It also includes a power component, a 94MW hydro power plant. The 600Mm3 reservoir would be located 30km from San Fabián de Alico, in southern Biobío region (VIII).

  • The integration of Chinese IT manufacturer Lenovo and IBM's low-end server business has been completed in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. Lenovo's business development and project management director for LatAm, Paulo Fernandes, told the Canalys conference in Rio de Janeiro that both companies have been working for the past six months on integrating operations. The US$2.3bn sale of IBM's x86-based server unit was signed in January. The Latin American integration is being carried out in three phases, the first one of which was the aforementioned five countries. The next phase is expected to be completed by January, and the final one - integrating all LatAm markets - by the end of Lenovo's fiscal year in March. The integration includes Lenovo taking over the business' customer service and maintenance operations, while IBM will continue to carry out maintenance delivery for an extended period of time. The acquisition will help Lenovo compete with rival HP, which has a commanding PC market share in the region. Lenovo claims to have a 15.2% PC market share in Latin America, where it sold some 1.5mn devices last quarter, according to Fernandes. Lenovo sells smartphones in more than 40 countries, including all Latin American markets with the exception of Brazil, where it sells CCE-branded phones. Lenovo bought CCE in 2012. Fernandes promised "major smartphones announcements" involving Motorola Mobility, which the company acquired from Google also in January, before the year-end.
