The Bella Unión Bridge, part of the Lima ring road, has gradually been opened to the public since 17 July 2017.

 

 The progressive commissioning of the Bella Unión Bridge on 17 July is a major step for the regeneration of the ring road of the Peruvian capital. This three-lane 300-meter bridge, which ends several years of cut-off between the two banks of the Rimac River, responds to the growing aspirations of the inhabitants of Lima for smooth mobility thanks to a bike path in both directions and several pedestrian crossings. Its construction required more than 200 000 hours of work without any accidents to deplore.

VINCI Highways, a subsidiary of VINCI Concessions, is responsible for the operation, maintenance and collection of tolls, as well as the construction of a new 9-km expressway incorporating a tunnel under the Rimac, 9 viaducts and an interchange. The Lima ring road is used every day by nearly 140,000 vehicles.
