Uruguay

We are improving transport infrastructures with Uruguay’s Ferrocarril Central railroad network and by remodeling the 21-24 road corridor.

We provide quick and safe transport links between Paso de los Toros and Montevideo

Uruguay was incorporated into our map back in 2015, when a consortium led by Sacyr secured the contract for the Rutas 21 and 24 road corridor concession.  

In 2019, we won the most important public-private investment project in the history of the country: Uruguay’s Ferrocarril Central railroad network. This project connects the city of Paso de los Toros to Montevideo port. It will cut journey times on this strategic route by half.

Promoting the development and structural organization of the country

Transport infrastructures provide structure and cohesion to a country and generate wealth in the area. The Public-Private partnership working on the Rutas 21 and 24 highways will develop a fundamental pillar in Uruguay’s transport links. These roads are the main corridor for the west coast, concentrating 50% of private vehicle movement in Uruguay.

The Ferrocarril Central is one of the most important railroad projects undertaken in the history of Sacyr, and we are participating through the consortium Grupo Vial Central (GVC). The budget for this project is 1 billion euros and will span 18 years (3 years of construction and 15 years of maintenance).

The road is expected to open fully in 2022 and it has already received numerous awards. These include the prestigious IJ Global award for its finance model.
