On Peruvian roads


The strategic objective of the current MTC administration is to pave 85% of the national road network, including the main goal of paving 100% of the Longitudinal Road of the Highlands.


Between August 2011 and December 2014, 5,646 kilometers of roads of the national road network were rehabilitated and improved with an investment of PEN14.640 billion, including public investment and co-financing of concessions. This effort has made it possible to have today 17,411 kilometers of paved roads in the country, which represents 75.5% of the national road network. Towards July 2016, the MTC will have paved 85% of the national road network – note that in 2011 only 53.6% of roads were paved, mainly in departmental routes. On the other hand, 23,687 kilometers of roads belonging to the national road network have been maintained (which includes temporarily reclassified networks). Of these, 13,137 kilometers involved service-level-based maintenance for periods of five years (38 contracts and one agreement), 4,931 kilometers were based on 13 concession contracts for periods longer than 25 years, while the remainder was submitted to routine maintenance by the Area Units of Provías Nacional. Service-level-based road maintenance contracts include commissioning, periodic maintenance, routine maintenance and emergency assistance by the maintainer-contractor, to ensure trafficability throughout the corridor and rapid assistance to the various emergencies that arise along the country’s roads, especially during the rainy season.


Longitudinal Road of the Highlands


With its 3,503 kilometers of extension, the Longitudinal Road of the Highlands will allow connecting from Desaguadero, on the border with Bolivia, with Vado Grande, on the border with Ecuador, thanks to an investment of US$3.596 billion between 2011 and 2016.


Between August 2011 and December 2014, 947 kilometers of this important road were paved by means of two strategies: with asphalt and with an economical pavement. Thus, 2,946 kilometers have been achieved, which is equivalent to 81.4% of the total. For the rest of this administration, a total of 558 kilometers of roads will be rehabilitated either with asphalt or with economical pavement.


This road will turn the production of the Andean region more competitive and will substantially improve the quality of life of millions of Peruvians.
