Antioquía Railways (Promotora Ferrocarril de Antioquía S.A.S.) has awarded the Consortium made up of Ardanuy Ingeniería, Cali y Mayor and CIP the Feasibility Study for the construction and commissioning of a railway line between Medellín and the Region of Urabá.
The new network will connect the city of Medellín with the Departments of Antioquia, Córdoba, Chocó and el Tapón del Darien, which borders Panama.
Ardanuy Ingeniería will carry out work on a section which makes up part of the country’s strategic infrastructure projects, that being the relaunching of the “Antioquia Railway”. The connection will total 305 kilometers and will be equipped for both freight and passenger travel. Overall project planning has been divided into three different key sections: La Pintada-Caldas (99.7 kilometers), Caldas-Barbosa (76.9 kilometers) and Barbosa-Puerto Berrío (128.4 kilometers). 52% of the existing alignment belonging to this line will remain intact while the rest of the line will be newly constructed.
This project is yet another step forward for Ardanuy in Colombia, a country in which the Company already has a Subsidiary Office and plans on continuing to grow in the future.
