Chile opens southern section of new Maipo bridge (VIDEO)

SANTIAGO – Chile’s public works ministry (MOP) has opened a section of the new Maipo road bridge south of Santiago.

On Wednesday morning, Public Works Minister Alberto Undurraga inspected the west structure of the new Maipo Bridge.

As indicated from the portfolio, the works delivered will allow to expand in three tracks that way, which would greatly improve connectivity and contribute to reduce congestion, in the face of the celebration of the Patrias.

For this route, on average, 80,000 vehicles circulate daily.

In addition, in the middle of the inspection, according to Latercera, the construction of the eastern structure of the bridge continues to advance.
