This 4,000+ km plan are all twinned highways?

Yes

For example the BR-163 is under construction

During the 30-year concession, the BR–163 will receive investments of R$ 5.5 billion. During the first five years, the concession will duplicate 453.6 km and build side roads along urban stretches and pedestrian walkways. For the city of Rondonópolis, a 10.9-km bypass road will be built. At the peak of the construction work, the development will employ 3,000 people, and during the operation phase, 500 people.

Along the stretch under the responsibility of Rota do Oeste, the highway traverses 19 municipalities. Some of these cities form the production heart of the state, such as Sinop, Sorriso, Lucas do Rio Verde and Nova Mutum. In all, there will be nine toll plazas, which will only begin to charge drivers when at least 10% of the duplication work has been completed.

Brazil seems to be pursuing the India / Turkey model (four-lane divided highways) instead of China (full-fledged motorways).

Well, I don't know if that plan will be effective, but at least it's a good step for Brazil......the duplicated roads are of course may not have fully motorway standards, however in a country like Brazil, they can "work" as such.

I think that apart from duplications, new dual carriageway roads should be constructed in western Brazil (in Amazonas for example), in order for the network to cover the whole country.....what do you think?

I doubt there is need for divided highways with four lanes outside the urban areas of western and northern Brazil. Traffic is probably very light in the Amazon jungle.

From what I've seen, the network of just two-lane roads is not completed. Many BR-routes have gaps, not only in the Amazon, but also in (north)eastern Brazil.

Well, then I think that at least a dual carriageway to Manaus would be a good solution.....the rest of the western Brazilian roads can be improved (and of course completed without gaps) two laned highways, because of the lighter traffic.....that could help, in my opinion....

The problem is that between Manaus and Porto Velho, the next and only big-ish city to its Southwest, there are 870km with just three small towns with pop < 30.000 and very limited economic activity. Most people would be happy when they open a 1+1 paved route there already!

At least in Brazil, this option was made because there is a reasonable infrastructure of 1+1 highways, mostly designed for 80-100km/h. When you add the lack of money and poor long-term planing, the best option is improving the existing highways, instead of building 120km/h-designed motorways and leaving behind the old highways.

Allright then, any decent highway without interruption because of the jungle would be a good solution for these cities
