The Administration of Railway Infrastructure (Adif) in Argentina has awarded COMSA a contract to improve the Chascomús rail link, a city in the province of Buenos Aires. The project is valued at about 11 million euros and has a lead time of nine months.
COMSA will build a 20 kilometre rail bypass, which will allow the Constitución-Mar del Plata branch line to avoid crossing the centre of Chascomús, thereby reducing the journey on that section by about twenty minutes.
The contract was officially concluded on 3 October in Buenos Aires, in a ceremony presided over by the President of Adif, Ariel Franetovich, attended by Ramón Castro, director of COMSA EMTE in Argentina. Also present was Gabriel Macchi, head of the Chascomús Reference Centre of the Ministry of Social Development.
