Description of the concession

In October 2014, OHL Concesiones was awarded a concession to design, finance, construct, operate and maintain the Río Magdalena 2 Toll Road for a 25-year term, extendable to a total of 29 years.

The infrastructure will have a total length of 155 km, of which 82 km will be brand new and the other 62 km will cover renovation and improvement of the existing road, currently in operation. The new section, covering two tunnels and 79 bridges, the largest in Puerto Berrío, over the Magdalena River, will be 1,480 m long.

Benefits for the community

This new infrastructure is part of the fourth-generation road concession plan launched by the Colombian Government to increase the connectivity of the country’s main production and export centers.

The project will significantly improve the integration of the Caribbean Coast, particularly the Córdoba and Sucre Departments, with Medellín, southeast Antioquía and Ruta del Sol covering, through the basin, Magdalena Medio, Santander, Cundinamarca, Tolima and Caldas.
