In four years, 2,400 kilometers of road will be granted to the private sector. That is the goal of the Ministry of Transport and Public Works (MTOP) that has developed a model of road network management for road maintenance. The country has a state network of 9,791 kilometers, of which 1,137 were built during the 10-year administration of former President Rafael Correa.
Up to this moment, two roads have been awarded: Rumichaca-Riobamba and Rio Siete-Huaquillas. Five more are currently in the awarding process. A total investment of USD 2 billion is envisaged. (I)
