Lot's of photos in this thread, but is there no more road news? It's turning into a photo essay.

This is the opening venue for the FIFA 2014 World Cup.

I'm skeptical they can complete all road works there in less than 90 days though.

São Paulo to call US$1.6bn Tamoios highway PPP



Southeastern Brazil's São Paulo state will call a tender by March 28 to concession its Tamoios highway, a government official who asked not to be identified told BNamericas.

"Governor Geraldo Alckmin will be officially announcing the launch of the tender next week [Mar 24-28]," the official said without giving further details.



Budgeted at 3.74bn reais (US$1.61bn), the concession involves operating and maintaining the Planalto and Serra stretches of the Tamoios highway, also known as SP-99, which runs between the city of São José dos Campos and coastal city Caraguatatuba.

The contract also involves 21.5km of road widening along the Serra stretch, and managing the Caraguatatuba and São Sebastião beltway, also known as highway SP-55.

That's Maringá northern bypass and I believe that's the smallest of the problems. People are not using it. There was this pic posted on Brazilian forum showing it but I couldn't find it now (it depicts long lines forming to get into the city while the bypass is completely empty).

Colombo Avenue (cutting the city east/west) is just insane but people prefer to cross the whole city which can take two hours during the rush.

When was the bypass opened? Often it takes up to 1 year for people to become fully aware of new options like that.

It opened on 10 January 2014.

I don't know how much "getting used to" there is, if you drive on BR-376, you automatically get onto the bypass from both directions.

Crazy DNIT projects. They don't have a clue about what are safe standards.

Exactly. To me, it has something to do with its layout. It should have started between Sarandi and Marialva, outside Maringá-Sarandi urban area, not on the Maringá-Sarandi border, with this tight half-circle shape. The way it was designed, it didn't solve the Av. Colombo/Sarandi urban area problem and just created a barrier between Maringá and its growing northern neighbourhoods.

As it's already done, it should be turned into an urban artery, connecting the bypass with every single avenue crossing it. In any case, it's a real shame. The traffic Av. Colombo has to deal with is something surreal.

Too bad I can't find the pic.

As Chris said, the bypass is right in front of them. They're actually detouring it.
