Soon I will post a general description of the future of highways/autovías in Colombia, and motorway concession projects in some major cities.

I don't actually think that cars are a viable solution to Colombias transportation problems.

Most of the cities are too densely populated for there to ever be enough space fo most of the population to use cars - and right now probably only up to 30% of the population has cars and traffic is already gridlock and chaos, even with alternating day rules in some cities.

The country also has alot of ecological diversity - second in the world I believe, and a poor record of enforcing emissions laws (there is a TON of dirty diesel there).

Enabling car-centric development (giant freeways, US-style suburbs, shopping malls for people with cars ), will only lead the country down an inefficient and environmentally bad path. Already much of the development in the last few decades is far too car centric.

Despite the enormous initial capital costs, I think that major cities in Colombia (as well as nearly every industry) would benefit much more and greatly from direct fast rail connections between them, rather than super-giant freeways. Building freeways is rather shortsighted, and this isn't a country that can afford to spend money inefficiently. The distances between major cities are not great, but there would need to be some world-class tunneling and trestling to ensure the most direct routes through the cordilleras. There should also be rail connections to popular destinations/touristy places. Many are small towns where a vehicle is totally unnecessary once one arrives.

It would of course need to be paired with world class transport in the cities, and more transit-oriented design than is currently used, oh and a make-over in attitudes among alot of people.

Imagine this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIa7-aOA4EU

Not saying that road improvements are not needed, but those should focus on roads that go to the smaller villages. Something as simple as blacktopping can cut travel times by half and support the cottage industries in these smaller towns tremendously.

I Agree with you, althoug, motorway concession projects in 3 principal cities, such as currently planned in Bogota, Medellin and Cali aren't bad projects.

Also keep in mind that you must pay for its use (the system will be similar to Santiago de Chile), and as expected, at least in the case of Bogotá, it's planned that they surround the city.

At the moment this is changing, the quality of diesel in the country is improving considerably over the past years, the idea is that particles per million in 2012-2014 will be comparable to international standards.

Yes but just becuase some can afford the tolls doesn't make it ok to pollute (CO). even with enforced auto emissions standards more cars still = more carbon monoxide, and more congestion and those looking for a better way of getting around are hooped. The options should be

a) eight-hour drives
b) 3 hour train-ride
c) 1 hour flight

Efficient, accessible, and environmentally clean transit (ie high speed trains) should be positioned as easiest, fastest, and most popular choice to push a change in direction away from car-culture before it is too late.

Bicentennial Highway


This highway is gonna be developed in the city of Santiago de Cali (capital of Valle del Cauca state) to commemorate the July 3rd of 1810, when Cali (3rd largest city in Colombia) was the first city in Colombia who rose against the Spanish Crown. That led, some weeks later, to the facts of july 20th of 1810 (the independence day of Colombia).

Bicentennial Highway will connect the north with the south of the city in 15 minutes. This urban highway is gonna be developed by a 30 years concession and it's expect to be finished in 2011.

I leave you here a video, divided in 3 parts, about the project. I'm sorry but it's in spanish...

PS: In the 1st part, minute 4:05, you can see some images of the highways of the Valle Del Cauca state (the best statal highways system in Colombia)...

Some news about the Bicentennial Highway...

Autopista Bicentenario, en Cali, será la primera del país financiada con peajes
El alcalde Jorge Iván Ospina tiene 18 meses, que ya empezaron a correr, para contratar su construcción.


Durante este tiempo otorgado por el Concejo, que ya le dio vía libre al proyecto, deberá también definir la operación de la vía y el diseño final de la superautopista de 14,8 kilómetros que unirá el sur con el norte de Cali en 14 minutos.

Esta obra es comparable con la doble calzada Buga-Tuluá-La Paila, la primera concesionada en el país y que fue ejecutada hace ya 14 años. La Bicentenario será concesionada a 30 años.

Peaje valdría 4.300

El Concejo facultó al Alcalde para que fije la tarifa del peaje y le dio un año para la desafectación de los bienes de uso público que se requieran para la construcción de la obra.

Según los diseños, demandará 380.000 millones de pesos, y de acuerdo con los estudios financieros, el costo promedio del peaje será de 4.300 pesos.

Además los conductores podrán entrar y salir de la superautopista y pagar solo por los kilómetros recorridos.

Los peajes serán electrónicos. Los estudios indican que durante el 2011 se movilizarán por la Bicentenario 30.000 vehículos diarios.

La vía, que correrá paralela a la red férrea, está concebida, especialmente, para el transporte pesado.

El Concejo determinó además, que una vez terminada la concesión, los ingresos que se causen por concepto del peaje serán de manejo directo del municipio y se destinarán al mantenimiento de la superautopista y las obras complementarias que requiera.

En doble calzada

Toda la vía será en doble calzada, cada una con dos carriles. Cada calzada tendrá 7,30 metros de ancho.

Partirá en el sur de Cali, por la Clínica Valle del Lili, cerca a Jamundí, y seguirá a lo largo de la calle 25 (zona oriental) hasta la calle 70, donde empieza el municipio de Yumbo.

Los conductores podrán movilizarse a 100 kilómetros por hora.

Paralela a la vía se han con-templado 22 kilómetros de ciclo ruta con 2,5 metros de ancho.

La Bicentenario demandará 300.000 metros cuadrados de pavimento, 45.000 metros cúbicos de concreto asfáltico, 12.000 metros cúbicos de concreto estructural y 2.000 toneladas de acero.

La secretaría de Infraestructura estima que en su construcción se generarán 10.000 -empleos directos.

El asesor de la Alcaldía, Alfredo Valenzuela, dice el nombre del Bicentenario es para recordar el 3 de julio de 1810, cuando Cali fue la primera población del país en dar el grito de independencia.

Fue sancionado por el alcalde Jorge Iván Ospina Gómez el Proyecto de Acuerdo con el cual se le da vida a la Autopista del Bicentenario. Ésta se convertirá en la primera autopista rápida por peaje urbano en todo el país.

“La autopista va a permitir que los caleños se comuniquen en tan sólo 14 minutos del sur al norte de la ciudad. Igualmente la Bicentenario va a significar empleo, renovación urbana y sin duda mejoramiento en la movilidad de la ciudad”, expresó el Alcalde.

De aquí en adelante vendrá la estructuración de los pliegos de la licitación, que se pretende adelantar en lo que queda de este año. La licitación también se abrirá en el 2009, con el fin de iniciar las obras en el 2010 y 2011.

“Esta obra tiene 15 kilómetros de longitud, es de cuatro carriles y tiene de una inversión de cerca de 380 mil millones de pesos, siendo éste uno de los macroproyectos más importantes de la sociedad”, reiteró Ospina Gómez.

La concesión privada será a 30 años y cuando se termine de pagar, volverá al Municipio. El peaje será electrónico, donde si se recorren los 15 kilómetros tendrá un valor aproximado a los 4.500 pesos y si se recorren 4 u otros kilómetros el precio variará.

“La Bicentenario recorrerá todo el sur al lado del corredor férreo, por la autopista Simón Bolívar, ascendería hasta la 50 con autopista Simón Bolívar y ahí tomaría la 25 hasta la 4ª norte por donde se saldría a la calle 70”, indicó el Alcalde.

El ingeniero Marco Zambrano, secretario de Infraestructura dijo que en esta fase inicial se va a armar un paquete grande para poder enamorar a muchos proponentes, concesionarios y oferentes que quieran presentarse, debido a que este es un proyecto atractivo, rentable y donde hay suficientes vehículos para que transiten por la vía.

“Gracias al Concejo por ese trabajo mancomunado que se tuvo con ellos y la Administración Municipal para que el proyecto saliera adelante”, puntualizó el Mandatario de los caleños.

Frente a la compra predios el ingeniero Zambrano dijo que no son muchos los que hay que comprar, pero que sí hay que resolver algunos inconvenientes ambientales, que hay que generar un plan de mitigación de árboles suficientemente bueno para evitar traumatismos en el tema.
