MegaProject 258: Minas Gerais launches tender process for ring road PPP



The Government of Minas Gerais, Brazil, launched on June 25th the tender process for the Rodoanel Norte highway public private partnership (PPP).

The project is the northern stretch of the metropolitan ring road. It will cross 8 cities (Sabará, Santa Luzia, Vespasiano, São José da Lapa, Pedro Leopoldo, Ribeirão das Neves, Contagem e Betim) and it is considered one of the greatest works of the metropolitan area of Belo Horizonte. It will have a length of 66 Km.

The road stretch will link the BR-381 highway, at the junction with the exit to Sao Paulo, and the BR-040 highways, at the junction with the exit to Brasília. Travel time between Betim and Ravenais expected to decrease from 60 to 36 minutes.

The contract term is 30 years and the estimated value of the investment is R$4 billion (US$1.81 billion), including land acquisition costs. The federal government will contribute with R$800 million (US$363 million) to the project. Land acquisition costs add a total of R$550 million (US$249 million).

SP-021 - São Paulo Ringway

A chart with São Paulo Ringway. Eastern section (1st phase) delivered today:

Os motoristas poderão transitar pelo trecho a partir das 8h de amanhã.

A estimativa é que 33 mil veículos passem pela estrada diariamente. "É uma obra importante, pois desafogará a Jacú-Pêssego e trará benefícios para o Grande ABC, além de diminuir o tempo de viagem em 40%", disse o governador.

A Artesp (Agência de Transporte do Estado de São Paulo) salientou que ainda falta concluir alguns ajustes como 200 metros de asfalto, limpeza e sinalização.

Os 6 quilômetros que ainda faltam para concluir o total dos 43,5 quilômetros do Trecho Leste, que chegará até a Rodovia Presidente Dutra, em Arujá, devem ficar prontos em 60 dias.

It is a swampy area, they found some weird frogs nearby and wanted to preserve a wet grass connection for them.

I'd say they have highly skewed and messed up priorities over there. Important road projects that will speed up flow of people and products, or address death traps on black spots on the highway network get delayed because of some stupid frog, or small group of non-threatened parrots.

At the same time, they don't crack down on trucks with wildly unregulated engines spilling soot like it were 1948, and allow 2-stroke motorcycles to run amok.

Perhaps some areas flood during the wet season. BR-493 runs parallel to a mountain range, so there's probably a lot of runoff.

São Paulo State

A 37,5 km segment of SP-021(Rodoanel ringway) opens to traffic. It runs from Mauá to Rodovia Ayrton Senna(SP-070).

I like how Rodoanel Mário Covas has interchanges almost exclusively with other freeways. That reduces the amount of local traffic and makes the road more capable of serving long-distance traffic around São Paulo without much delay.

Yes. It connects ten huge highways that finishes in São Paulo and they are already big enough to keep the ringroad busy. The western section, however, is becoming more and more a regular urban freeway.

As I've said here, São Paulo is the crossroads of Brazil. It's relation with the country is not like US and New York. São Paulo is much much more important, being really the heart of Brazil. Of course it's impossible to measure that, but São Paulo might be one of the busiest highways nodes in the world.

I liked the "weird frogs" and the "stupid frog"!

São Paulo has definitely one of the busiest freeway networks of any large urban area in the world. Buenos Aires is also extremely busy, but São Paulo has more through traffic to other large cities (especially truck traffic).

São Paulo is also located inland, but the geography makes a good bypass difficult. BR-101 is not much of a functional bypass of São Paulo.
