Pamplona-Cúcuta highway

The Pamplona-Cúcuta dual carriageway is the most important infrastructure of Santander del Norte. With this project we are giving a solution to border mobility between Colombia and Venezuela as well as with northeastern Colombia. Boosting competitiveness and making the region more connected will be possible through the construction of a 50,2 km new road and the rehabilitation of a 72.2 km of the existing track between Pamplona and the Betania sector in Los Patios, Norte de Santander. 

The Pamplona-Cúcuta project won the Americas Transport Deal of the Year award for having achieved a financial closing of $525M, which took place amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.   

In terms of innovation, the road promotes sustainable actions that foster the care of biodiversity. The initiatives include the use of local perennial and forage species –pasto kikuyo (Pennisetum clandestinum) and pasto estrella africana (Cyndon nlemfuensis)– to minimise our impact on the landscape. The planting of its horizontal stems (stolons) allows to mitigate the visual impact, improve the soil situation and recover the intervened areas.

Additionally, this project was the first one within our international portfolio that has used IOHNIC’s technology, a sustainable illumination system developed by Sacyr Concesiones that seeks to improve the visibility in the tunnels, promote the Sustainable Development Goals, implement safety measures and reduce energy consumption.
