The “Yellow Line” road network will soon begin operation.
According to the plans established looking to innovate Peru’s infrastructure, this big work will finally start operating in one month. This January, the work will be delivered to the Municipality of Lima for supervision and then be open to the public.
According to Stéphano Brondino, director of ‘Lamsac’, there will not be a trial stage for free rides, because tolls will be charged from the very first day.
Crossing the tunnel that passes under the Rímac river will cost S / 5.30. This tunnel valued at 700 million dollars, will have 10 viaducts of 9 kilometers each, including the tunnel that will connect Lima and Callao in less than 25 minutes.
The toll booths will be at the height of the Army Bridge and in the Cantagallo area. Lamsac, in charge of the concession of the Via Amar Linea Amarilla, says that when the work is completed there will be two tolls for the two directions (south and north) to the tunnel under the river Rimac.
It is worth mentioning that the 2018 budget will focus on communities affected by El Niño, with other priorities including infrastructure to close social, productive and sporting gaps.
