Concession agreement between the Government of Mato Grosso and Via Brasil Consortium to implement improvements in 188.2 km of the MT- 320 road, signed this Friday (12) by Governor Mauro Mendes, State secretary of Infrastructure and Logistics (Sinfra), Marcelo de Oliveira, and the President of the Consortium, Cesar Menezes. The agreement authorizes the beginning of road recovery works to benefit around 112 thousand people in five Northern counties.

Via Brasil Consortium led by CONASA Infraestrutura acquired a lot regarding the MT-320-MT-208 road sector, located in Alta Floresta, during a São Paulo Stock Exchange (B3) auction, in February 2018. In his speech, during the celebration of the agreement, Mauro Mendes stressed that, currently, Brazilian states are incapable of providing citizens with efficient services in several areas. According to him, “Mato Grosso has great demand for paved roads, but will not have, in the next decades, financial resources to take on all these works. Thus, it is important to look for viable alternatives to solve the problem”. 

Cesar Menezes, president of Via Brasil Consortium said the company is interested in making preliminary improvements in the MT-320 and MT 20 road sector, in a short time. He emphasized that the signature of the agreement on a date that coincides with the end of the rainy season will help the work. In addition, he says, “the signature of this agreement is very important to the Consortium companies, since they are all making great efforts to operate in Mato Grosso, a state with great future, which produces and needs good infrastructure to develop its activities”.


From the signature of the agreement this coming Friday, Via Brasil Consortium will be responsible for the total recovery and maintenance of the MT 330 and MT 208 road sector between Alta Floresta, Carlinda, Nova Canaã do Norte, Colíder and Nova Santa Helena, a total of 188.2 km, as stipulated in the agreement.

Only after the realization of these improvements, the Consortium will be authorized to collect toll.  According to the contract, three toll plazas will be installed on the road sector in question. One on MT -320, Km 1.7, in the vicinities of Colíder; the other also on MT-320, Km 59.8, in Nova Canaã do Norte and the third on MT-208, KM 23, in the county of Alta Floresta at R$ 7.90 for each sector.
