FCC will carry out road upgrades in Nicaragua
Spanish contractor FCC has been awarded a contract to carry out key road upgrade works in Nicaragua. The €32 million project will see improvements being carried out on the 39km route connecting Los Chinamos with El Ayote. The project will be carried out in two separate stages and will take 23 months to complete. The first section measures 19.6km long and runs from El Camastro to Los Chinamos. The second stretch is of a similar length and is from Los Chinamos to El Ayote. The client for the project is the Nicaraguan Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure (MTI). Work being carried out includes improvements to the alignment and drainage, as well as upgrades to bridges. The work is expected to improve transport in the area, improving safety for drivers while also reducing journey times.
