The Road Link to the MAPA Project, located on Autopista Costa Arauco, is inaugurated

On January 31, a new very significant milestone was marked in the road infrastructure and development of the VII region of Chile, with the inauguration of the Road Link to the MAPA Project.  This Link is part of an ambitious plan to modernize and expand the emblematic Arauco Plant, whose operation will provide Chile’s energetic matrix with 160 Mega Watts of clean energy, allowing the country to make concrete steps towards carbon neutrality.

This link, strategically located on Autopista Costa Arauco, has begun its operation in the white march phase, allowing fluid and safe traffic for vehicles in this vital area.

The project is a real work of advanced engineering designed to integrate harmoniously with the environment and ensure minimal environmental impact. The construction of the link, located at kilometer 50.3 of Autopista Costa Arauco, has been the result of a collaborative effort between the company Arauco y Constitución S.A., the Ministry of Public Works (MOP) and the Sociedad Concesionaria Autopista Costa Arauco.

This is very significant news for the region, since this road link will not only facilitate access to the modernized pulp mill, but will also play a crucial role in improving vehicle flow in the region, benefiting thousands of daily users.

This project stands out for its high quality standards, road safety and its design aimed at minimizing traffic interruptions. Furthermore, this link is expected to play a crucial role in the logistics and transportation of products from the plant, thus strengthening and favoring the local supply chain.

The Road Link to the MAPA Project is a tangible example of how investment in infrastructure can be an engine of economic growth, while respecting the environment and improving the quality of life of local communities. This project not only symbolizes progress in the pulp industry, but also marks a step forward in Chile’s infrastructure and sustainable development.
