Project scope and objective

The Bucaramanga – Barrancabermeja – Yondó corridor, also known as “Ruta del Cacao” (“the Project” or “Ruta del Cacao”), is part of a fourth generation (4G) group of concessions being spearheaded by the Government of Colombia via its National Infrastructure Agency (Agencia Nacional de Infraestructura – ANI). The project, which covers a total area of 190.6 km in length, is primarily located in the Department of Santander, with a portion in the Department of Antioquia.

The project is divided into nine functional units (Unidades Funcionales – UF), namely: (i) UF1 Yondó – Guillermo Gaviria Bridge – La Virgen – Rancho Camacho, which is 40.45 km in length and entails the rehabilitation of 10.37 km, and the operation and maintenance of 30.08 km, of the existing road; (ii) UF2 Barrancabermeja – El Retén – La Virgen – La Lizama, which involves the rehabilitation of the 3.2 km dual carriageway road between Barrancabermeja and El Retén; the operation and maintenance of the existing 26.95 km road between El Retén and La Lizama; and construction of the second carriageway—21.05 km in length—between La Virgen and La Lizama; (iii) UF3 La Fortuna – La Paz Bridge – Capitancitos – Lisboa, which consists of improvements to the existing 17.9 km road between La Fortuna and La Paz Bridge and maintenance and operation of the 19.7 km road between La Paz Bridge – Lisboa; (iv) UF4 La Fortuna – La Paz Bridge, which entails the construction of a second 17.97 km lane; (v) UF5 La Paz Bridge – Santa Rosa (entrance, La Paz Tunnel), which includes construction of a 14.76 km single lane; three bridges that total 1.6 km; and two viaducts that total 0.8 km; (vi) UF6 La Paz Tunnel, which involves construction of the 3.17 km La Paz Tunnel; (vii) UF7 Río Sucio – Lisboa, 6.4 km in length, consisting of the construction of the 2.2 km La Sorda tunnel; 3.3 km of open road; and four bridges that total 0.99 km in length; (viii) UF8 Lisboa – Portugal, which includes construction of two lanes, 3.2 km each; and (ix) UF9 Portugal – Lebrija, which entails rehabilitation of the existing 12.4 km road and the construction of a second lane, of the same length, parallel to the first.
