Completion of the major elevated road project for Peru’s capital, Lima, is due in 2027. Called the Via Expresa Santa Rosa (VESR) road, the 3.7km link runs the entire length of Santa Rosa Avenue and will connect the Costa Verde waterfront with the extension of Peru's new Jorge Chávez International Airport.

The US$218 million project is intended to reduce Lima’s chronic peak period traffic congestion. The project is being managed by Peru’s Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC).
