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 Libramiento de Ciudad Obregón (Decongestion of Ciudad Obregón) project consists of building a 34.2-kilometre-long access road to the city. It is expected that this road will be used by about 4,300 vehicles daily, shortening travel time from the current 50 minutes to 30 minutes.

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