The project is for the Bogota-Girardot 4G road concession, with a loan from Colombia's national development bank, Financiera de Desarrollo Nacional (FDN), providing the necessary financing.

The $172.3 million loan is being provided to the Concesion Via 40 Express consortium, which will handle the private initiative project.

The consortium comprises Vinci Highways, which holds a 50% share and Constructora Conconcreto andIndustrial Conconcreto, both of which hold 25% shares. The consortium partners will have to meet the necessary due diligence requirements before the loan is finalised.
