Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The “Circuito 6” project consists of upgrading 78 km of the existing Route 6 in the Oriental Republic of Uruguay, which connects Montevideo with the Brazilian border and crosses the departments of Montevideo, Canelones, Florida, Durazno, Cerro Largo, Tacuarembó, and Rivera (the "Project"). Pursuant to the Public-Private Participation Law and related regulations, and after an international public tender, the Ministry of Transportation and Public Works (MTOP) has awarded the construction, 20-year operation, and financing of the road infrastructure of Route 6 to the concessionaire Circuito Seis Cuchilla Grande SA, formed by the Spanish firm Rover Infraestructuras SA and the Uruguayan firm Construcciones Viales y Civiles SA (CVC). The maximum execution time for the initial works is 36 months. 


The Project's works include: i) widening and restoring existing pavement structures; ii) widening and restoring the intersections with other routes, secondary roads, and accesses to the main route; iii) expanding the road between Belloni and Route 74 to a two-way street; iv) building bicycle lanes; v) refurbishing and/or building bridges and storm drains; vi) installing lighting and signage and metal guardrails; and vii) constructing a bypass to the city of San Ramon.

People Affected By This Project
People Affected By This Project refers to the communities of people likely to be affected positively or negatively by a project.

Esta operacion ha sido clasificada preliminarmente en la Categoria B, de conformidad con la Politica de Sostenibilidad Ambiental y Social de BID Invest, debido a que los impactos ambientas y sociales, asi como los riesgos ocupacionales previstos, tanto para la etapa de construccon como de operacion son acotados, reversibles y gestionables mediante la aplicacion de planes y procedimientos conocidos en el sector.

De conformidad con la legislacion vigente, solo el bypass de San Ramon, de 8 kilometros de extension, que incluye ademas la construccion de tres nuevos puentes sobre el arroyo Pilatos, el rio Santa Lucia y el viejo cauce del rio Santa Lucia, y la construccion de un puente sobre el arroyo Tala (situado a 1 km al sur del inicio del bypass de San Ramon) requieren la presentacion de un estudio de Evaluacion de Impacto Ambiental ("EIA") para la obtencion de la Autorizacion Ambiental Previa ("AAP").

La Debida Diligencia Ambiental y Social ("DDAS") para el proyecto contemplara: i) la recopilacion y el analisis de la documentacion ambiental y social disponible; ii) la evaluacion de la capacidad de gestion ambiental y social del consorcio constructor; iii) la realizacion de reuniones virtuales con representantes del promotor del proyecto, del consorcio constructor, de las autoridades gubernamentales (en especial de la Direccion de Topografia del MTOP, vinculada a la gestion de reasentamiento involuntario) y, eventualmente, de terceras partes que pudieran sentirse afectadas por el Proyecto; iv) la identificacion de eventuales impactos y riesgos que no hubieran sido senalados o adecuadamente evaluados en los estudios ambientales y sociales correspondientes; y v) el analisis del cumplimiento del Proyecto con la Politica de Sostenibilidad Ambiental y Social de BID Invest. Como resultado del proceso de DDAS BID Invest preparara un Resumen de la Revision Ambiental y Social ("RRAS" o "ESRS", por sus siglas en ingles) y un Plan de Accion Ambiental y Social ("PAAS" o "ESAP", por sus siglas en ingles) que estaran disponibles en este sitio web.

Sobre la base de la informacion recibida y revisada a la fecha, las Normas de Desempeno (ND) que el Proyecto estaria activando son: ND1: Evaluacion y gestion de los riesgos e impactos ambientales y sociales; ND2: Trabajo y condiciones laborales; ND3: Eficiencia del uso de los recursos y prevencion de la contaminacion; ND4: Salud y seguridad de la comunidad y ND5: Adquisicion de tierras y reasentamiento involuntario. La determinacion final de las ND que el Proyecto activaria sera efectuada al termino del proceso de DDAS.

The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IDB Invest)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IDB Invest is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
