Massive road projects in Brazilian Amazon

It might have passed unnoticed even in most of Brazil, because such projects have been discussed for years if not decades. However, improved economic conditions and a push against a sui generis green activism against any development in Brazil, some massive road projects are now under construction or about to be started in the Brazilian Amazon.

An outlook can be seen below. In blue, road paving projects now under construction. In red, a critical missing link waiting a final administrative clearance expected to be granted within 10-16 weeks (then you can let the James Cameron wannabes start crying because, well, I don't know why they think Brazil can't have good roads ).

Total extension: 2.340km of road paving, the most intense push of large scale road construction in the Amazon since 1982!



Below, you can see a 434 km stretch from BR-319. It is the only land link between the major industrial center of Manaus and the northern state Roraima (all of them linked by paved roads to Venezuela) to the rest of the country. It has an odd history: the road was opened in 1973 with sub-par (too thin, inadequate for the soil) paving and wood bridges. However, the southern connection with the rest of Brazilian network was not entirely paved until 1986. The road decayed and it now has a very bumpy ride, asphalt long gone. Now, they are rebuilding it, but some crazy greens are viscerally opposed to it. Good for us, Brazil now has plenty of money, don't need to rely on external financing for such projects, and soon they will be able to make blog posts about "the destruction of the forest". As you can notice, this stretch of forest is almost unspoiled.

Cost: ~ US$ 733 millions.


Now, other project (extension: 744km), BR-230 (Transamazonica). It was built in the early 1970's as a main axis for countless settlement programs. If you look well, you will see perpendicular roads sci-crossing the main road. More than 900.000 inhabitants live in the direct area of influence of this road. Though it has never been paved, it has better travel conditions year round, allowing speeds over 70km/h when dry, and with concrete bridges on smaller rivers (and ferry crossings on the main ones). Notice that this is not a country unpaved road, but indeed a road with a lot of earth movements, infill and cut, drainage systems and standard width. Pavement was lacking, but now roadworks started last week in 6 different fronts, and the whole project is expected to be completed in 2 years. Cost: ~ US$ 1.2 billion.

On yellow, the placemark for the Belo Monte hydropower dam, which was tendered couple weeks ago. It will be the third largest hydropower dam as measured for its power, after the 3 Gorges Dam (China) and Itaipu Dam (Brazil/Paraguay). Cost of the dam: US$ 14.3 billion.


Those who want can look at the interactive map on Google Maps (simple) http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...506836&t=h&z=5

On the other hand, the Amazon rain forest is so incredible vast that a few paved roads to major centers wouldn't hurt the area too much. I'm sure they don't predict high traffic volumes there, the only traffic on such roads is long-distance traffic. How many people drive 1500 kilometers one way, every day?

I'm all for the conservation of the Amazon rain forest, but a little common sense doesn't hurt. They'll be the only paved roads within several hundred kilometers radius. I don't think you can prevent deforestation if there are no paved roads.

"Horto" in Portuguese means "cultivation garden". An "horto" is a place where large trees and sometimes pot plants are cultivated in their earlier stages.

Just to make it clear: this is a bridge over Negro river, on the Amazon, but not over the Amazon. Its location is http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...38581&t=h&z=15
