12/19/2017 – COMSA has recently completed the widening of a section of the Régis Bittencourt highway in the Serra de Cafezal along with the doubling of the SP-345 road in São Paulo (Brazil). These two infrastructure expansion projects are aimed at improving terrestrial communications and decongesting arterial roads for the mobility of each of the regions.
The Régis Bittencourt highway was COMSA’s first road contract in the country. Executed for the operator Arteris and with a value of 42 million euros, the works consisted of the doubling of 4.5 kilometres of highway between São Paulo and Curitiba and the construction of 16 viaducts. For Arteris, COMSA also delivered the 16 million euro project to widen around 10 kilometres of the SP-345 road, which included three new overpasses between the cities of Franca and Patronage Paulista in the north of São Paulo.
Continuing in the field of civil engineering, the company has recently begun in consortium the doubling and restoration of a 78-kilometre stretch of the BR-101 road in the region of São Miguel dos Campos, in the state of Alagoas, in the northeast of Brazil. The works will include ten new structures and seven viaducts, and are valued at 132 million euros.
Finally, in the area of Brazilian railway, COMSA continues to progress in the construction of the second phase of Line 4 of the São Paulo Metro, a 235 million euro project whose main actions involve the commissioning of four new stations, the execution of more than 2,000 meters of tunnel and the construction of three emergency exit stairwells. This contract is in addition to that which has just been awarded for the widening of 10 kilometres of road for the company Rumo Logística between Río Claro and Camaqua, also in São Paulo.
