ConstruccionesRubau has been awarded the contract to build and operate a motorway in Ciudad Obregón, in the Mexican state of Sonora, with an estimated investment of 1.5 billion pesos (85 million euros).

The Secretariat added that the proposal submitted by the ConstruccionesRubau consortium was ‘the most solvent from the technical and financial viewpoints».
