Perote-Xalapa Highway - Mexico | America

Description

Isolux Corsán built the Perote-Xalapa Highway and Xalapa Bypass, the most modern and safe highways in the state of Veracruz (Mexico), which will help boost the economy of the region. The inauguration of this infrastructure took place four months after the opening of the first section of the motorway between Perote and Banderilla last July.

The Perote-Xalapa Highway is designed to ease traffic and reduce the time and cost of travel between Mexico City and the port of Veracruz.

The 60 kilometer highway was built for the Government of Mexico, through the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT), and provides a connection Perote and Xalapa and the Xalapa Bypass. The concession period is 45 years.

The Perote-Xalapa Highway is designed to ease traffic and reduce the time and cost of travel between Mexico City and the port of Veracruz, one of the largest seaports in the country. Awarded to Isolux Corsán in 2008, the infrastructure has four lanes and is proposed as a faster and safer alternative for travel between the cities of Xalapa and Perote.

Together with Saltillo-Monterrey, this infrastructure is one of the most emblematic works performed by Isolux Corsán in Mexico. The construction includes various viaducts and unique structures, inlcuding a 346 meter tunnel measuring 180 square meters in cross section. It also includes a 470 meter long and 114 meter high viaduct.

The Saltillo-Monterrey highway, with a length of 95 km, is 100% operated by Isolux Corsán with a concession period of 45 years. This infrastructure recently became a hub of competitiveness for the more than 5 million people living in metropolitan areas of both cities.
