Pamplona-Cúcuta road project: positive impact on rural Colombia

This new road infrastructure benefits more than 943,400 people in the region.

The Pamplona-Cúcuta project, developed by Concesionaria Unión Vial Río Pamplonita (Sacyr Concesiones), is one of the critical road infrastructures for the development of Norte de Santander.

This project spans 62.2 km, including 50.2 km (divided and simple highway) of new construction and the rehabilitation of 72.2 km of pre-existing road between Pamplona and Betania, Los Patios.

These improvements will optimize mobility and reduce travel times as well as operating costs for users, ensuring a faster, safer, and more comfortable road corridor, for the direct benefit of more than 943,400 people in the region.

First Norte de Santander tunnel

Three tunnels were built in the execution of the project: Norte Santander spanning 1.4 km, Pamplonita, spanning 1.1 km, and La Honda, spanning 406 meters. These tunnels incorporate IOHNIC technology, a sustainable lighting system developed by Sacyr Concessions, which enhances visibility within the tunnels, improves road safety, and reduces energy consumption.

Building future: our corporate volunteering program in Colombia

Within our commitment to the community, we have built the La Colonia Rural Educational Center in Bochalema. Additionally, we support the integration and strengthening of the communities in the Cristo Rey neighborhood in Pamplona, and we have improved the conditions of educational institutions by providing school kits, beds, and mattresses.

We also collaborate with Ayuda en Acción in a women's empowerment program where we assist 45 entrepreneurial women in improving their living conditions through the project.

Throughout the project execution, we have carried out multiple socio-environmental program activities such as training sessions, tree planting, support for productive projects, entrepreneurship initiatives, health brigades, among others.

Social bond financing

The project's refinancing for $642 million received a social seal qualification from Moody's ESG Solutions and included a $400 million social bond. This operation earned Sacyr the Bonds & Loans 2023 Award to the Best Structured Financing of the Year in Latin America.
