"The Puerta de Hierro Toll Road Project is comprised of (i) the design, improvement, operation and maintenance of 192.6 km of an existing bi-directional carriage toll road and (ii) the design, construction, operation and maintenance of a 5.2 km greenfield bypass pursuant to a public-private partnership concession under Colombia’s 4th Generation road expansion program. The toll road will facilitate the connection between major Caribbean port cities of Barranquilla and Cartagena with interior departments near the Caribbean coast and further south to Medellín and Bogotá. The Project will enable increased vehicle speeds (additional 5 km per hour on average) that reduce travel times across the roadway, reduce vehicle operations costs, improve road safety, and enhance environmental protections for flooding and road settlement."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION (DFC)
The Office of Accountability is an independent office that addresses complaints about environmental or social issues related to DFC-supported projects. The office provides communities an opportunity to have concerns independently reviewed and addressed. If you submit a complaint to the Office of Accountability, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a problem solving dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the DFC complied with its policies to prevent environmental, social, human rights, and labor harms.
