The Ministry of Transport and Communications announced the execution of four infrastructure projects on the Central Highway, including the concession for the construction of a road tunnel
The Minister of Transport and Communications, Bruno Giuffra, announced that in addition to declaring the Central Highway under emergency, four (4) intervention initiatives have been prepared in this highway, in order to reduce the traffic generated on a daily basis.
The first work considered will be the construction of a tunnel of 10 km between the bridge "Los Angeles" and the area of ??Ricardo Palma. This work would be carried out through a concession under the scheme of self-financed private initiative.
Another project that has been coordinated with the current concessionaire of the road is the construction of road pairs in different sections of the road, so that they have dual carriage ways and thus decongest the traffic in Ticlio.
In addition, the use of the central railway is being evaluated so that it is allowed to enter the port of Callao and thus avoid the discharge of goods in the city, as well as its use for the transportation of passengers.

Among the main works, rehabilitation of roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, homes and investment in hydraulic works for the agricultural sector, affected during the "Niño Costero" phenomenon in early 2017, has been considered.
