On the 2nd of November 2019, the President of the Republic of Colombia, Mr Iván Duque Márquez, officially inaugurated a new 740m long underground road tunnel in Montenegro, in the region of Quindío.

The new tunnel is part of the upgrading works of 17Km of the road La Tebaida – Montenegro.

According to INVIAS, “it represents an important achievement for the mobility through the most important tourist and agricultural corridor of the “Coffee Axis”.

The construction of the tunnel through the municipality of Montenegro decreases travel time significantly and improves both road and pedestrian safety, preventing accidents of those who move through the town center.

Tec Cuatro is part of the joint venture charged with the works supervision of the new tunnel.
