Road Network No.4 (hereinafter "the RV4") is one of the most important roads in Peru, connecting its capital, Lima, with several important cities and ports in the northern part of the country. In 2009, OHL Concesiones, now Aleatica, was awarded the concession for the road, which includes; i) the operation and maintenance of 356 km of existing road; and ii) the construction of a 283-kilometer second lane. Subsequently, by means of Addendum 2 to the Concession Agreement in 2016, it was also entrusted with the construction of a 37-kilometer long Chimbote bypass. To fulfill the objectives of the concession, Aleatica has created two companies: i) Autopista del Norte (hereinafter "AUNOR"), which is responsible for managing the construction works and serves as the concessionaire of the RV4; and ii) Operadora de Carreteras (hereinafter "OPECAR"), which is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the concession.
IDB Invest’s participation (hereinafter "the Project") will focus on providing resources for the construction of: i) the works required to complete the RV4 (Pativilca-Santa-Trujillo and Puerto Salaverry segments); and ii) the Chimbote bypass.
