Brazilian National Transportation Agency files studies of “Nova Dutra” (BR-116/101/SP-RJ) concession with TCU


The Brazilian National Transportation Agency (ANTT) filed the new concession project of BR-116/101 / SP / RJ with the Federal Court of Accounts (TCU) this Thursday (11/5), after the Concession Plan was approved by ANTT’s board and by the Ministry of Infrastructure. The road connects the two biggest cities of Brazil, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The new concession contract will include the section of BR-101 that connects the city of Rio de Janeiro to Ubatuba, on the north coast of São Paulo, making a total of 626 km.

The project was deliberated at the 2nd Meeting of the PPI Council, having been qualified in the PPI portfolio through Decree No. 9,059/2017. The concession contract of BR-116 / RJ / SP currently in force concerns a 402-km-length section that connects the two largest metropolitan regions in the country, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro (Via-Dutra), and should expire in March 2021.

The new concession project involves investments of BRL 14.5 billion, including 80 km of lane duplication, 317 km of additional lanes, 151 km of service/frontage roads, 154 devices and intersections (such as cloverleaf interchanges, returns, rotaries and grade separations), 128 pedestrian overpass, 4 truck drivers rest stops, among other interventions.

In the Metropolitan Region of São Paulo, investments will be made to improve fluidity and security for local and long distance users. To achieve this objective, an expressway for long-distance travel will be implemented, as well as new service/frontage roads, access loops, tidal lanes, and traffic and lighting monitoring and management equipment.

For those who choose to use the expressway, even for shorter journeys, there will be a free-flow system, with the installation of frames along the expressway to electronically charge a km-based fee.

In the state of Rio de Janeiro, plans include a new ascending roadway in Serra das Araras, the construction of viaducts and a tunnel and the adaptation of the current ascending roadway to be a descending runway. At the end, there will be 4 traffic lanes per direction.

On BR-101, the section between the municipalities of Rio de Janeiro and Angra dos Reis is to be duplicated, tunnels will be constructed and overtaking lanes will be implemented.


The project incorporates several innovations, among which we can mention: the adoption of a hybrid criterion for the auction (lower tariff, with a maximum discount of 15.31%, and greater concession fee/bonus); hedge mechanism; tripartite agreement; greater clarity in the rules for early termination of contract; separate tariffs for single lane and double lane traffic; seasonal tariff on BR-101 (reduced on weekdays); discount for frequent users; modern management and operation systems; road safety IRap technology; intelligent lighting; remote management systems; and a program to neutralize carbon emissions related to the concession operation (Carbon Zero Program).
