Peruvian President Alan Garcia will visit Friday the southeastern Madre de Dios Region to open the Inambari-Iñapari stretch 3, El Triunfo-Planchon section of the Southern Inter-Oceanic Corridor between Peru and Brazil.
With an investment of US$ 32 million, the 34 km-long newly-paved section goes from El Triunfo town (located at the 486 km mark) to Planchon town (at the 520 km mark).
The opening of this section marks the completion of the highway linking Peru’s Puerto Maldonado with Iñapari in the frontier with Brazil.
In total 337 km of roads and 12 bridges have been completed so far, which represents 82 percent progress' of the project.
The Head of State is traveling accompanied by Transport and Communications Minister Enrique Cornejo, and Odebrecht official Jorge Barata.
