Ocean to ocean: Argentina is moving toward linking itself with Chile by rail and road

The route should reduce the travel time of exports from the Midwest of Brazil to Asia and Oceania (China, Japan, India, Australia) by up to 2 weeks.

RIO DE JANEIRO BRAZIL - Argentina is moving forward with the plans for establishing a rail corridor between the Atlantic port of Bahía Blanca in southern Argentina and the northern Pagagonian port city of Talcahuano, Chile to create a Pacific-Atlantic link.

Under the first of the two rail projects, around 216km of tracks will be recovered while the tracks connecting Zapala, Neuquén, and the Chilean port will be expanded by 93km, reported Bnamericas.com.

The project will be jointly executed by railway corridor administrators and Chilean ports.
