New road tunnels for Chile’s capital

Two new road tunnel links are being planned for Chile’s capital, Santiago. The parallel tunnels will measure 1.5km in length and both will carry one-way traffic.

Construction of the twin tubes is expected to cost around US$353 million. The work is planned to commence in 2022 and should take 3 ½ years to complete.

The project is being carried out by Chilean subsidiary of Spanish contractor Abertis, Vias Chile. The package of works was signed with the Chilean Government.
