Rota do Oeste is responsible for the recovery, conservation, maintenance and implementation of improvements along the BR-163 Highway between the municipalities of Itiquira (MT) and Sinop (MT), a stretch that extends 850.9 kilometers.
The highway is an important integrating axis in Brazil, playing a strategic role in the logistics infrastructure. It is the main means for the transport of the grain production from the Central-West region, which accounts for 30% of all national production.
During the 30-year concession, the BR–163 will receive investments of R$ 5.5 billion. During the first five years, the concession will duplicate 453.6 km and build side roads along urban stretches and pedestrian walkways. For the city of Rondonópolis, a 10.9-km bypass road will be built. At the peak of the construction work, the development will employ 3,000 people, and during the operation phase, 500 people.
Along the stretch under the responsibility of Rota do Oeste, the highway traverses 19 municipalities. Some of these cities form the production heart of the state, such as Sinop, Sorriso, Lucas do Rio Verde and Nova Mutum. In all, there will be nine toll plazas, which will only begin to charge drivers when at least 10% of the duplication work has been completed.
