INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Economic growth, social advancement and action against the climate emergency depend largely on investment in infrastructure, sustainable industrial development and technological progress. Today, about 1 billion people live more than 2 km from a roadway, 940 million live without electricity, and 663 million lack improved drinking water sources.
ACCIONA participates in the entire infrastructure construction value chain, from the identification of opportunity, design and execution, to the operation and maintenance of the constructed works, using the most advanced and innovative techniques.
Performance quality and safety are two of the criteria that maximize the company's value proposal in the development of large infrastructure projects and that differentiate it from other competitors in the construction field.
The road includes four urban junctions and connections with the interstate highways, and consists of two carriageways of five lanes each, of which three are express lanes and two are for local traffic; it also has 15 free-flowing toll points.
Project Finance magazine awarded the highway the “Latin American Transport Deal of the Year 2004” award because it was the first time that the Chilean government applied income distribution to a concession and that a bank co-financed a toll road along with investors in Chilean bonds.
The advantages of this system include: traffic flow along the highway under concession, as well as on the roads not under concession in the area; users can drive along any highway under concession in Santiago or intercity thoroughfares that have this system, using a single tag; a significant reduction in pollution levels, compared to traditional traffic systems.
