Uruguay Central Railway

This railway project, under a PPP contract, includes the construction and maintenance of the 273 kilometres of railway track between the Port of Montevideo and the city of Paso de los Toros. We were also tasked with upgrading the line to meet the higher standards required to enable the use of freight trains at speeds of 80 km/h, weighing 22.5 tons per axle. It is foreseen to be operating by 2023 and has already received multiple awards, one of which is from the prestigious magazine IJGlobal, for its financing model.
