Mar2 Highway PPP project in Colombia sees erection of 1st I-beam


The CHEC co-contracted Mar2 Highway PPP project in Colombia saw erection of its first I-beam recently.

Measured 39.7 m in length and 2.2 m in height, the beam weighs 86.5 tons, equivalent to about 57 cars. The erection of the beam marks the official start of the project’s beam construction.

It is also the first time a China-made bridge beam erection machine has been used for beam erection in Colombia’s road industry. Despite difficulties brought by this global health crisis, the Chinese and Colombian constructors have made great progress through joint efforts and will continue advancing the project construction.
