Colombia's National Infrastructure Agency (ANI) and Estructura Plural SAC 4G have signed the Sea highway 1 'Autopista al Mar 1′ PPP project.

Estructura Plural SAC 4G is a consortium composed of Sacyr Colombia S.A.S. (37.5%), Strabag S.A.S.(37.5%) and Concay S.A. (25%).

The 176 km road will connect the city of Medellín and the Sea highway 2 "Autopista al Mar 2"The project involves the construction of 17 tunnels and 41 bridges. It includes the following road stretches: Occidente-San Jerónimo, San Jerónimo-Santafé de Antioquia, and Bolombolo-Santafé de Antioquia.

The total project investment is estimated at P1.51 billion (US$478.8 million).

The project, which belongs to the 'Autopistas para la Prosperidad' package of highway projects, is part of the second wave of 4G highway projects, including a total of 9 concessions.
