    Spanish entrepreneurs got to know yesterday (10/11) the details of the new transportation project in Rio de Janeiro financed through public-private partnerships: the expansion of the Light Rail Vehicle (VLT) to the city’s South Zone. With invesments of R$ 1 billion, the new VLT pathway will connect the Botafogo and Gávea neighborhoods with a network approximately 23 km long, and transport over 200.000 passengers per day.

    According to information by the Subsecretary of Structuring Projects for the Special Concessions and Public-Private Partnerships Secretariat (SecPar), Gustavo Guerrante, in November, City Hall should call on companies interested in developing studies at no cost for the city. The bid winner should begin construction in the second semester of 2016 and implant the service in three and a half years. Part of the operation’s revenue will be used to reimburse those responsible for the studies.
