Project Description

The Project involves the development, expansion, rehabilitation, construction, and operation of an 83km dual carriageway toll road in Nariño province, Colombia. Approximately 70% of the Project will be expansion and rehabilitation of an existing road and the remainder new construction. The existing road is 82.91 km with two 3.65 m lanes and berms ranging from 0.5 to 1.0 m. The Project has five functional units (UFs) based on prior designs from the National Infrastructure Agency (ANI). The San Juan-Pedregal Segment, which covers sections of UFs 1, 2, and 3, comprises a total length of 29.09 km with a road width of 23.20, including two roadways of 7.30 m each, a 2.0 divider, 0.50 m internal berms, 1.80 m external berms, and an additional 2.0 service zone on the external side of each roadway. Of the 29.09 km, 24.99 km will be new road and 4.10 km will involve construction of a second roadway parallel to the existing roadway. The Pedregal-Catambuco Segment, which covers UFs 4 and 5.1 comprises a total length of 32.76 km. Both segments require the creation of culverts for waterway crossings, drainage ditches, intersections and interchange connections, operations control centers and camps, and sidewalks in densely populated urban areas. The Project will include construction of up to 13 bridges and two new toll stations. Approximately 2,300 land plots need to be acquired across the five UFs. Most of these are not in residential or economic use; however approximately 520 social receptors (families or individuals who live or practice an economic activity on the land) are affected by physical displacement across all the UFs. There are just over 160 households with informal rights who are likely to be the most vulnerable of those physically displaced. The Project had six ethnic communities recognized and certified by the Ministry of the Interior as being eligible for the national consulta previa process and trigger PS 7: Catambuco Indigenous Council (UF5.1); Montaña de Fuego Indigenous Council (UF4); Iles Indigenous Reserve (UF2 and UF3); Aldea de Maria Puisnan Indigenous Council (UF1.3); San Juan Indigenous Reserve (UF1.3); and Ipiales Indigenous Reserve (UF1). Four of these groups reflect Pasto ethnicity and two represents Quillacinga ethnicity.
