The project is being carried out by a consortium; Construbase-Cidade-Paulitec.

Building the bridge itself is costing around $84 million.

However, the work also includes building around 37km of connecting roads and in all this comes with a pricetag of over $180 million.

Included with the link road construction will be the building of two small bridges as well as an overpass stretch.

Building the Puente de la Integracion link will also improve transport with Argentina, which lies to the immediate south of Presidente Franco and Foz de Yguazu.

The bridge will be around 174m high when complete.

Meanwhile, the Costanera Sur project in Paraguay’s Asuncion has been paused for the moment.

The project is being handled by the Consorcio del Sur consortium while the financing for the project is finalised.

Consorcio del Sur comprises Eurofina and Topografia y Caminos SA (TyC).
