DESCRIPTION
This project connects several communities of the Department of Potosí with the rest of the country through the construction of a 188.3 km section of a single carriageway road, improving the living conditions of local communities, unlocking large and remote areas and spurring economic development through trade (particularly of agricultural products), improving and enhancing access to markets and the mobility of people as well as boosting tourism. Likewise, the project contributes to regional integration by improving access to neighbouring countries (Chile, Argentina, Paraguay), looking forward to increasing Bolivian exports to these countries and further develop the local tourism sector.
RESULTS
  • Construction of a 188.3 km section of a single carriageway road, with one lane in each direction, between Uyuni and Tupiza in southern Bolivia, decreasing travel time between both localities from 8 hours to 3.5 hours.
  • Connection of two routes in the main road network: one westward to Chile and one southward to Argentina and Paraguay.
