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.

  • Peruvian engineering company Graña y Montero (GyM) and a unit of Spain's Aguas de Barcelona are looking to invest in a public-private partnership (PPP) to provide water treatment services on Peru's north coast. The state agency in charge of promoting private investment, ProInversión, received a proposal from the two companies to invest in a 25 to 30-year concession in Entidad Prestadora de Servicios de Saneamiento de Lambayeque (Epsel), ProInversión official Lucio Asalde told reporters. Lambayeque municipal authorities will take a decision on whether the proposal by GyM and the Spanish firm's Aqualogy unit is viable, Asalde said. Company officials are scheduled to meet on April 20 with the mayors of Chiclayo, Ferreñafe and Lambayeque, who are on the Epsel board, he said. The housing and construction ministry will put up 300mn soles (US$100mn) in financing for water treatment PPPs, Asalde said. "It will be the first meeting to explain to authorities the benefits of a PPP and clear up doubts, as it isn't a privatization," Asalde said. The government set a 4.94bn-sol (US$1.7bn) infrastructure budget for this year, to pay for initiatives including 1,600 water and sewerage projects. LAKE TITICACA In other water infrastructure news, the government, together with Puno municipal authorities and Puno state water company EmsaPuno, plans to invest 6.7mn soles in a project to clean up lake Titicaca, deputy construction minister Francisco Dumler said. Authorities will purchase a dredge and clean out water treatment ponds in Puno, Dumler told state news agency Andina. Lake Titicaca has been polluted by untreated sewage from the city.

  • Mexico's petrochemicals sector has lacked investment for decades but the reforms taking place in the country, which will allow the private sector to participate across the production chain, have awakened interest in the sector,Braskem-Idesa commercial and business development director Cleantho Leite (pictured) told BNamericas in an interview. "With Mexico's energy reforms there will be more availability of raw materials, which will lead to new projects at various stages of the petrochemicals production chain, and Braskem-Idesa would definitely be interested in investing in such projects," said Leite, who will speak at BNamericas Mexico Oil and Gas Summit this week. Braskem-Idesa is developing the US$5bn Etileno XXI petrochemicals plant in Veracruz, the largest private investment in the sector to date. "Pemex made a long-term raw materials contract available, and that's what gave investors the confidence to invest in this project," he said. The plant will enter operations in the final quarter of this year as planned and produce 1Mt of ethylene and 1Mt of polyethylene per year, Leite said. And although that project came about independently of the energy reform, the approval of the legislation last year means that there will likely be new opportunities for the firm in Mexico in the coming years. "Private investors will no doubt be interested in entering Mexico's petrochemical sector, which hasn't been given much priority by Pemex over the years, and at each stage of the production chain, such as methanol, ammonia, ethylene, as well as fertilizer production, as a result of increased natural gas supply." But things will take time, he said. "Nothing will be immediate or quick, but I think there's a promising future for the sector in Mexico." He pointed to the fact that low oil prices, which affect the E&P sector, can have benefits for downstream players, as their products can become more competitive due to lower electricity and transportation prices. BNamericas will host its 3rd Mexico Oil & Gas Summit on April 15-16, and its 3rd Mexico Electric Power Summit on May 13-14, both in Mexico City.
