6,400 drivers will benefit daily from new CABEI-financed road access to Tegucigalpa


Multilateral makes first disbursement of US$200 thousand for the final studies of the "Libramiento Anillo Periférico - Carretera CA-5 - Sur Project".


Tegucigalpa, June 1, 2021.- One million inhabitants of the Central District, and at least 6,400 drivers who access Tegucigalpa daily will benefit from the construction of the new access to the capital city under the "Peripheral Ring Road - CA-5 - South Highway Bypass Project" financed by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI).

The total financing for the project is US$44.2 million, and this month the first disbursement of US$200,000 was made to update the designs and final studies required for the construction of the new road, which consists of 5.36 kilometers from Colonia La Cañada (Peripheral Ring Road sector) to Colonia Santa Rosa in the Aldea El Tizatillo sector (connecting with the CA-5 Sur highway).

"We recognize the strategic importance of this beltway for Honduras, which will improve access to and exit from the city of Tegucigalpa, which has a high volume of traffic coming from the south and the outskirts of the capital. With this type of project, the Bank is contributing to improving land mobility at the national and regional level, which is a fundamental pillar in the commercial exchange of the Central American region," said CABEI Executive President, Dr. Dante Mossi.

The road design calls for a minimum of four lanes and a maximum of six, as well as the construction of three at-grade and three off-grade traffic distributors, drainage, retaining walls and protection works, and erosion control. The project also includes the construction of five bus stops, taking into account the housing developments that are being promoted in the area.

The Project has an impact on the Strategic Axes of Human Development and Social Inclusion and Sustainable Competitiveness of CABEI's Institutional Strategy 2020-2024. At the same time, it is framed in the Country Vision 2010-2038 and the 2010-2022 National Plan of the Republic of Honduras.
