Governments To Carry Out Bridge Study
News: The governments of Argentina and Paraguay have invested about USD700,000 on a study of a bi-national bridge to be constructed on the Parana River, between the towns of Eldorado, in the Argentina province of Misiones, and Mayor Otaño, in the Itapúa department of Paraguay. The study will identify factors that determine current demand for transportation between the two cities and also calculate future demand. The Argentine government is also currently preparing funding for the study. Subject to approval, the study is expected to start in May. The Inter-American Development Bank's non-refundable contribution towards the study will be US$500,000. The bridge will alleviate existing traffic along the border, and save time and money.
