Brazil unveils US$ 66 billion stimulus plan to boost road, railway construction



Brazil's government unveiled measures today to lure up to 133 billion reais (US$66 billion) in private investment for new roads and railways needed to unclog the country's transportation bottlenecks.

The measures include a plan to double capacity of the country's main highways, with concessions for roads and railways, Transport Minister Paulo Passos said at an event in the capital Brasilia.

.....

Rousseff, during comments at the ceremony, said the measures would help Brazil become "richer, stronger, more modern and more competitive." Such investments, she added, can make "Brazil finally have infrastructure compatible with its size."

The government also hopes the investment will jump start the economy in the short term. The investments, the minister noted, are expected to take place over the next five years.

"This isn't a program for investments to be diluted over the next 15 or 20 years," Passos said.

The program foresees concessions to expand the country's old and overloaded road and rail systems. In addition to plans for major highways, the government hopes to lure investments for up to 10,000 kilometers (6,200 miles) of Brazil's rail network.

Is there a map of the soon-to-be-twinned-and-tolled highways?

More infrastructure investments (a step in the right direction indeed).

P.S.
Off-topic:

Lexus has opened their very first dealership in Sao Paulo.





So yeah, if ever I decide to rent-a-car in Brazil, then I will rent one from the Lexus Brazil dealership in Sao Paulo
