Investments in Ositran-supervised concessions totaled US$54.8 million in October 2019, a 43.46% increase compared to the amount recorded in the same period last year.
This surge was led by investments —worth US$21.4 million— in Pisco-based General San Martin Port Terminal, which is 44.76% complete since concession.
Ositran explained that investments in railways totaled US$23.5 million in October this year, thus marking a 21.87% increase.
Peru's transport regulator noted that such growth was mainly attributed to investments in the Lima and Callao Metro Line 2
, worth US$14.67 million.
In addition, it reported that investments in Lima Metro Lines stood out between January and October.
Thus, during the first 10 months of the year, investments made in Ositran-supervised infrastructure totaled US$476.6 million, of which 62% —or US$295.6 million— was invested in mass transit electric systems.
