We are at almost 80% progress in the development of the Ferrocarril Central de Uruguay

We recently reached a milestone: the 100 km of railway track installed

The Ferrocarril Central de Uruguay project, led by Sacyr through the concession company Grupo Vía Central, recently reached a milestone: the 100 km of railway track installed.

In this sense, more than 78% of work progress has already been achieved, with 30% of track installed. In addition, 90% of earthworks and trench digging are completed, as well as 80% of the structures (bridges, frames, sewers).

This project is the the most ambitious public-private investment in Uruguay and also the most important investment in the country's history.

The Ferrocarril Central track will connect Paso de Toros with the port of Montevideo in a faster, safer and cheaper way, covering a 273-km route.
Travel times will be reduced by less than half, going from 14 hours with the current train (the current track is more than 100 years-old) to six hours with the future train.

Among the advantages that this project brings to the country, there are the development of infrastructures in general. Complementary works to the train improve the general infrastructure of both Montevideo and the inland of the country. 
The existing utility services network, such as electricity, water, sanitation, and piping that run under the tracks will also be greatly improved.
