Corredor Bioceanico

The Corredor Bioceanico (Corridor of the two oceans) is an east-west corridor through central Bolivia that connects the Pacific with Atlantic oceans via Chile and Brazil.

It is currently being improved.

65% paved
35% gravel
0% dirt


Some stats about the eastern section:

Great find Chris! There are several bi-oceanic road/river ways under construcction in South America. I think there is one in Ecuador from the Pacific city of Manta to the Amazonian city of Manaus in Brazil and then on on the Amazon river to the Atlantic. There are two in Peru/Brazil, one in Chile/Bolivia/Brazil, one in Chile/Argentina/Paraguay/Brazil, and a last one in Chile/Argentina

Peru-Brazil: that's the combination of Routes 26 and 34 to the Brazilean border. Route 26 comes from the Nazca region (port of San Juan, also access to Lima) and Route 34 comes from the Arequipa region (also access to port of Ilo). Both routes are in a good state when you are closer to the Peruvian coast. The sections in the Amazone flatland of Peru are open, but an upgrade would be most welcome. On the Brazil end, you'd use existing connections to Manaus and Belem. You could also connect to Rio, but using this connector from Peru to Rio would be silly. You'd use the connector through Bolivia instead, which has a good connection with Peru Route 3 (and thus with Pacific ports).

Ecuador-Brazil: not too familiar with that route.

Chile-Bolivia-Brazil: as highlighted by Chris above.

Anything further South: the road networks of Argentina and Brazil are good enough to permit Ocean-to-Ocean once you have made it across the Andes. As far as I know, the most prominent Andes-crossings would be from Antofagasta to Salta (CH-RN23, AR-RN51), from Santiago to Mendoza (CH-RN60, AR-RN7) and from Puerto Aisen to Comodoro Rivadavia (CH-RN240, AR-RN26) and then you have a few possibilities in the deep South of Patagonia. But there are other crossings as well, they're just less prominent.

Hey Pino, I think there are three official interoceanic and/or bioceanic corridors in Peru/Brazil: the Carretera Interoceánica Norte (North Interoceanic Highway), the Carretera Interoceánica Central (Central Interoceanic Highway), and the Carretera Interoceánica Sur (South Interoceanic Highway). Check the Highways in Peru thread for a description of these routes

The roads are surprisingly good, given that the terrain is high-altitude and extremely rough and Bolivia is a pretty poor country.
