Sacyr, a construction and infrastructure company in Spain, has been awarded three new projects for the construction, rehabilitation and updating of different urban areas in Bogota.
The three projects are valued at €38m and reinforce Sacyr’s position as one of the major construction and infrastructure companies in the South American country.
The first project, awarded by the Urban Development Institute (IDU), involves the rehabilitation of the Zona Rosa de Bogota for an amount of €10.8m.
The area operation will be 71,555 sq m and includes the reconfiguration of the road and extension of sidewalks to give priority to bicycles and pedestrians.
A bicycle lane with two road axes has been designed to this end, in addition to the connection of the Virrey Park bike path with the current bike lane of the Kr 11 and the future Kr 9.
The reconfiguration of the widths of the sidewalks for pedestrians and the reconstruction of the existing path between Autonorte and Carrera 15 have also been taken up.
Furthermore, the company will design and develop a pedestrian network to reorganise mobility in the Sabana urban area.
The work, valued at €18m, will include the reconfiguration, reconstruction and expansion of the pedestrian corridor; construction and replanting of sidewalks and separators; and the maintenance of the public area.
The third project involves the rehabilitation and improvement of Avenida Boyaca with an allocated budget of €10m.
Sacyr will build a two-way road, each with three lanes, including traffic signs and replanting as well as a bicycle lane. Under this project, the asphalt paving works will be carried out with reused materials from used tires.
“These contracts allow us to continue with the projection, growth and consolidation of Sacyr as a leading company in the construction and infrastructure industry in Colombia,” the company said in a release.
