Real opportunities for progress in the area
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 toll system is open, with three core toll areas located in Chivilingo, Curanilahue and Pilpilco. The operation and maintenance tasks will include the maintenance of the wearing course, restorations, maintenance and inspection of structures, maintenance of signposting, maintenance of drainage systems and lighting. Since the beginning of the concession, the existing road has been operated and maintained. Route 160 will contribute to the productive development of the area and is the key route for the transportation of wood.
A very significant impact is expected in terms of safety, thanks to the construction of a double track with a segregated median and uneven crossings, among other elements. All of this should allow for an increase in the competitiveness of current economic and productive activities. It will have a particular effect on forestry, fishing, livestock and agricultural activities, as well as promoting aquaculture, services and tourism, which will provide real opportunities for progress in the area.
