Argentina Rolls Out Infra P3 Plan

Argentina’s president Mauricio Macri’s strong showing in the midterm elections last month drove the quick passage of a raft of pro-market programs by the nation’s Congress in November, including the approval of a US$12.5-billion highway package supported by the nation’s first P3 code. 

A first package of roads, Rutas del Sur, will be tendered in January 2018. The roads start from Buenos Aires and run west to the Andes, and will require about US$8 billion for design, construction, operation and maintenance. The roads are identified from letters A through F, according to a government notice. The roads will connect the city and state of Buenos Aires to the provinces of Mendoza, San Luis, Entre Rios, La Pampa, Cordoba, and Santa Fe.
