Colombia projects underway

Construction on Colombia’s Cirardot-Ibagué-Cajamarca highway is moving forward as concessionaire San Rafael moves forward with the tendering process. The concessionaire was awarded the project in July of this year and has submitted a US$176 million investment plan, reports Business News Americas. The 20-year concession includes carrying out all the necessary technical and financial studies, as well as construction, expansion and operation of the 196km highway. The work includes building a tunnel and bypasses. Rehabilitation works will be carried out over 93.7km of highway, while construction works will total 73.4km.

Meanwhile, Spanish infrastructure companies are interested in participating in road concessions to be developed in Colombia. These companies are already investing in Chilean urban expressway and regional highway concessions as they form part of the consortiums handling these projects, and are represented by Copsa, said Gatica.
The Spanish firms operating in Chilean concessions include OHL Concesiones, Cintra, Acciona and Sacyr Vallehermoso. These companies are also working with US firms in an effort to develop road concession projects in that market.

Hi:

A road throug the darien gap, at this moment hasn't build, because a road in this gap will gave a hard impact for the nature, would have that to do a special design, and for now twe have projects more important than this.

5 freeways are planned for Bogotá, taking the model of freeway of Santiago de Chile.

They are true freeways that the city needs them and they will use them who really need these roads because to drive for these freeways you should pay himself a rate.

Este es el modelo de ciudad que plantea un estudio realizado por la firma Odinsa y divulgado por la Cámara Colombiana de Infraestructura (CCI).

La idea es construir supervías de norte a sur y de oriente a occidente de la ciudad, las cuales se financiarán con peajes electrónicos y capital privado.

La investigación denominada “Sistema Integrado de Transporte Público y Particular para la Bogotá del Futuro”, cuenta con el aval de Fenalco Bogotá y el ministro de Transporte, Andrés Uriel Gallego Henao.

El jefe de la cartera dijo ayer que esa era la tendencia del transporte urbano ante el crecimiento exponencial del parque automotor de las ciudades colombianas. “Eso hay que hacerlo, para allá vamos porque no cabemos en las ciudades con las condiciones de hoy”, dijo.

Explicó que los esfuerzos por expandir la malla urbana requieren de mayor dedicación y que las soluciones implantadas hasta ahora resultan insuficientes.

Cifras del Ministerio muestran que en la década del noventa había un vehículo por cada 15 personas en el país. En la actualidad hay un vehículo por cada siete, es decir que circulan 4,6 millones de automotores sin contar con las vías suficientes.

Para el presidente de Fenalco seccional Bogotá, Dionisio Araujo, “si no se toman medidas como está, “la ciudad entrará en una inmovilización total con consecuencias nefastas para la productividad”.

Araujo dijo que este tipo de infraestructuras podrían perjudicar la ubicación de establecimientos comerciales, sin embargo, señaló que se puede implementar una política de reubicación.

“Traerá muchos beneficios, pues será posible realizar los recorridos en menor tiempo y con un impacto ambiental y productivo favorable”, indicó el dirigente gremial.


Propuesta
El presidente de Odinsa, Luis Fernando Jaramillo, aclaró que dicha investigación es un primer vistazo y que por ello no ha sido presentado a las autoridades distritales.

Las inversiones requeridas para el desarrollo de esta red de 150 kilómetros de autopistas bordean los 1.800 millones de dólares.

La firma plantea cinco arterias viales: Longitudinal de Occidente desde La Caro hasta El Muña, ya estudiada y parcialmente en construcción, de la cual hace parte la Avenida Cundinamarca; la Longitudinal de los Cerros Orientales desde La Caro hasta la salida a Villavicencio, con tramos a cielo abierto, viaductos y túneles; Transversal Norte desde los Cerros hasta Cota por la Calle 170 (alternativas pueden ser la 153 ó 134), cruzando bajo los Cerros de Suba en túnel; Transversal Central desde Germania por la Avenida Eldorado, con acceso al Aeropuerto y desarrollo por el lado de una de las pistas hasta empalmar con la Concesión Chía – Girardot, y la Transversal Sur que prolongará la Longitudinal de los Cerros hasta el Muña. (Ver mapa).

Según el director de proyectos de Odinsa y autor de la investigación, Héctor Salazar Bonilla, la propuesta está basada en la experiencia chilena en donde están en funcionamiento cuatro superautopistas.

“En Santiago circulan cerca de un 1,2 millones de vehículos, mientras que en Bogotá 1,4 millones. Cuando empezaron las obras en la capital chilena el poder adquisitivo de los habitantes era inferior al que tienen hoy los bogotanos”, señaló.


Gestión del alcalde electo
La red de autopistas hace parte de una política integral de soluciones como el metro, Transmilenio, tren de cercanías, cobro unificado y chatarrización. Directivos de la CCI explicaron que la decisión de crear un Sistema Integrado de Transporte para Bogotá que incluya la participación privada en la implementación de una Red de Autopistas Urbanas, debe ser una de las prioridades de la nueva administración distrital.

These photos are great, do you have pics of the roads over mountain passes, ie Cordillera mountains (east, west, middle)

How about travel on roads at night? Are they actually safe from bandits or rebels? How is the road from Bogota to Cali/Popayan or Cartagena?

Mark.

Hi:

The next pics and pics of post #6 shows Cordillera/Mountain passes (the pass that is show is Ibagué-Armenia, at middle "Cordillera", and is the same pass of #6 post. I take the next pics a month ago ):













A lot of Fog:



The road from Bogota to Cali it's very safe, has a lot of towns and cities, and this road is at the moment enlarged to transform it into "Autovía", and there is already several km that have been built.

Bogotá to Medellín also it's safe to travel.

Actually the most of highways in Colombia have Military/Police presence 24 hours (day and night, obviously especially in the night, there are battalions of the Colombian Armed Forces and they protect the roads and the territories in the mountains, and police stations for the monitoring of the traffic and security of the travels).

From Bogotá to Popayan it's the same road to Cali-Bogotá, and Bogotá from Cartagena also is safe, but this travel actually is something long, Cartagena is very far from Bogotá. Until next year begin the works to build a freeway called "Ruta del Sol", that connects Bogotá from Cartagena and it's planed to reduces the time of travel 40%.

The insecure areas to travel are toward the southeast of Colombia, the "Llanos Orientales" and "Amazonía" (Areas that are not tourist, and have a low density of population, and depends of air transport principally), this zones have presence of police and military, but in this part of the country are insecure in fact for that they are recovering for the state of the rebels and there are constants combats. In short, at the southeast there is not a single important city, the biggest city reaches to have 40.000 inhabitants.

Today in general travel for Colombia it's safe (in all the roads that you travel you can see the presence of police and military, in special at the end of year, january and july, the monts of vacations, and the Colombian goverment has made a very good administration to reduce the kidnapping in 83% in the ultimoses 5 years, in short, it is a problem that this almost solved one, offering protection and security to the Colombians and those who visit our country).

Greetings

The pictures of the passes are great That tunnel should relieve that congestion on the pass.

The perception here (Australia) is that Columbia is very dangerous to travel around (because of rebel kidnappings and drug cartels). I hope this is overcome so people visit, there seems to be much to see. The roads really do appear to be in good condition.

What about those Autovía's. Are they the same like Spanish Autovía's, like 2x2 lanes, emergency lanes, central divider, acces controlled on and off ramps, gas station, rest areas, etc?

Or are they more like a four lane major highway, but with grade intersections?

That pass will become Autovía, (the problem with that pass is that there is a change of height of more than 1000 meters while you travels among the two cities, and the land is very sharp, that makes that it is an even challenge the engineers to build another roadway, at the moment they are being ahead some works to begin to expand this road), the tunnel will avoid to ascend so much, and to cut the distance of the trip a lot, the current road will be of a roadway sense, and the tunnel plans to be the other roadway of the railcar, the road will see like a normal railcar until it arrives to the entrance of the tunnel, and to the exit of the tunnel when they are the two rails again.

That perception of our country one has in almost everybody (for not saying everything). Although today in day in the country has improved a lot the situation, the international image has been made it has improved and there is increment in people that visit Colombia, we have that stigma, and it is necessary to even make a lot to remove that bad fame, and to put an end to those problems.

Most of Colombian Autovias are similar to the Spanish Autovias, with all those characteristics (to exception of some areas where there are small populations on the autovia as for the accesses), of which takes charge of maintaining the company to which was taken charge him the concession of the Autovia.

At the moment the only roads that would enter in the freeway concept like such it would be Bogotá-Briceño and "La Paila-Cali" (Armenia-Cali). And in a future Bogotá-Santa Marta (Santa Marta is to less than half hour of Cartagena).

Two points my friend, first it is COLOMBIA not Columbia (sorry but Columbia is a city in the US).
Second check some blogs about Colombia you will be surprised to see how many Australians visit Colombia, and you'll even be more surprised to see how many actually fall in love with it!

Perception is a hard thing to overcome and also thanks to Hollywood and the bad rep from foreign media Colombia is fighting an up-hill battle to reverse that unwanted reputation.
