Project Description
IFC will work with the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil, to structure a new Roads Concessions Program that encompasses 4 batches of brownfield roads, namely Mid-West Roads, Roads of the Shoes Industry, Sao Paulo Coast Roads, and North Beltway.
People Affected By This Project
The new road concessions, encompassing more than 1,700 km of roads, are expected to improve access and integration to various frontier municipalities in the inner regions of the State; improve logistics conditions among economically relevant cities; enhance overall road safety to roads users; and improve the quality of the roads and decrease traffic congestion in regions of major economic importance in Brazil. The project will also help introduce new standards of international investment in Brazils infrastructure market and introduce operational innovations in the road sector.
