Brazil aims to prioritize its rail and road networks in the next few years. The portfolio includes 70 main railway projects with a planned investment of 113,600 million reais (about 26,220 million euros).
Among the twelve most important railway initiatives are the North-South connection, the construction of the Fico and Ferrograo railways for transporting goods, and the “bi-oceanic railway”, which will link the Brazilian port of Santos to the port of Ilo in Peru with an investment of 12,000 million euros.
