Timelapse driving, in São Paulo State. Itatiba to Itirapina, crossing the city of Piracicaba. Lots of waterfalls in the middle.

What is the status on the Porto Maravilha project in Rio de Janeiro? The tunnel was planned to be completed by late March 2016.

Does that sign on the last photo indicate that trucks should keep right if possible, or a complete truck passing ban?

It means "slow vehicles keep to the right". It is not a passing ban on heavier vehicles.

What's the current status of highways that were privatized a couple of years ago? Is there still investment despite the severe economic contraction, the lava jato and political turmoil? What are the future privatization plans?

Brazilian traffic code doesn't have a truck passing ban. Since 80% of the highways are somehow hilly, the intention of these signs is just to prevent the slower full-loaded trucks from clogging multiple lanes, while allowing trucks moving faster to keep overtaking the slower ones.

The new concessions are working fine. There are some predictable delays with environmental review, expected to be sorted in the following months since it is mostly a technical thing not tied to the political turmoil. Of the new concessions signed in 2014, just one is semi-abandoned because the leading partner on the consortium and ALL other partners are involved with the criminal investigations on bribes and corruption. Concessions are generally isolated from controlling interests with SPE-like arrangements and project financing.

There are plans to put further 3.000km to tender, but these plans are stuck until the political situation is sorted out. There is ample and widespread support for new concessions, though, so regardless of outcome we can expect more federal highways to be put on concession tenders for widening/maintenance.

Good to hear! Could you or anybody else give a brief summary of sections under concession and the progress under work? Thanks!
