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.

Con el objetivo de dar mayor fluidez al tráfico en el área metropolitana de Santa Cruz, que se ha incrementado con la construcción de la Carretera Bioceánica, el proyecto contempla la construcción de la carretera Santa Cruz – Las Cruces - Buena Vista, con una longitud de 81 kilómetros, que permitirá que el transporte pesado entre Argentina y las ciudades de La Paz y Cochabamba, no pasen por Portachuelo, Montero, Warnes ni el 4to anillo de la capital, disminuyendo el volumen de transporte pesado que circula por la carretera al Norte Integrado.

Este proyecto conectará la carretera nueva a Cochabamba con la vía a Camiri, reduciendo tiempo, costos y distancia en aproximadamente 50 kilómetros, además de favorecer el desarrollo socio-económico de las zonas por la que se desarrollará el proyecto.
