A major highway concession package has been awarded to a consortium in Colombia. Concesionaria Vial Andina (Coviandina) has won the tender to manage the 85.6km road connecting capital Bogota with Villavicencio. The package was awarded by the national infrastructure agency (ANI). Under the terms of the deal, the firm will maintain two sections of the existing road and build a new dual carriageway stretch with two lanes in either direction for the third section. The third stretch poses particular challenges to construction as it features 21 bridges and six tunnels, with the building work having commenced in 2016. The concession package for the route was previously handled by Concesionaria Vial de los Andes.
