BR-364, the main highway in Rondônia, entered the “list” of privatizations. The confirmation is from the Ministry of Transport, which has positioned itself in the last week. The next step, now, is for the agency to publish the announcement and announce a possible date for the auction, due to take place in the second half of this year.
Among the projects to BR, if privatization occurs, are new investments, as well as improvement and duplication of the highway. According to the Ministry of Mines and Energy, the investment will be about R $ 11 billion.
The company that wins the concession will have the challenge of realizing, for example, projects that focus on improvements in the BR-364 infrastructure. In all, there are more than 800 kilometers “on the radar” of privatization, a stretch that comprises between Comodoro, in Mato Grosso, and Porto Velho.
The BR-364 is one of the main federal highways in Rondônia – it cuts the state from North to South. It is also one of the main grain corridors in the region.
The possible privatization of the BR-364 should contribute to vehicular traffic, as well as the reduction in the number of accidents on the highway, for example.
One of the last accidents that happened in the BR-364 was in the KM 286 of the highway, between the cities of Cacoal (RO) and President Médici (RO) on 22 January. At the time, a 31-year-old driver was killed in the wreckage of the wagon he was driving. The vehicle was loaded with fish to make food.
According to the Federal Highway Patrol (PRF), the victim died after she allegedly made a “zigzag” on the road.
Twelve days before, a collision left four people injured and one dead. The accident occurred around 6:50 am at KM 219, Pimenta Bueno height (RO).
According to the Federal Highway Police (PRF), the victim who died is the sister of the former mayor of Ji-Paraná (RO), a municipality more than 370 kilometers from Porto Velho, Leonirto Rodrigues, known as “Nico”. He was also in the vehicle along with his wife and daughter.
At the time, a vehicle tried to overtake, but could not. When trying to return to the original track, the car drifted and stopped in the opposite way.
