From a development perspective, AVO is divided into two phases: AVO I (Built) and AVO II (In Development). In turn, AVO I is made up of two sectors: Sector 1 and Sector 2. Each of these sectors has presented unique challenges that have required complex solutions and comprehensive technical and social approaches.
Solutions in Sector 1
For Sector 1, which extends from Avenida El Salto to Avenida Francisco de Riveros, a three-lane viaduct was designed for the trunk with an approximate length of 1,400 m, and a mine tunnel with three lanes approximately 2,100 m in length. Additionally, access and connection branches were included, giving relevance to the approximately 500 m long mine branch of AVO I with the “Costnera Norte” concession. Originally, this stretch experienced high traffic congestion for long periods of the day, especially at junctions with other roads. The construction of the AVO I highway alleviated this situation, improving mobility and reducing travel times.
In addition to improving mobility and reducing congestion, the project has preserved the character of the corridor and improved the existing park, guaranteeing its integration and producing the urban rehabilitation of the sector. Benefits of this project include: improvement of road safety, reduction of noise and atmospheric emissions, and the revamping of the park with better design components, tree planting, equipment and infrastructure.
