On Friday Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro met with his Paraguayan counterpart Mario Abdo Benítez at Foz do Iguaçu to sign the authorization for the beginning of construction works to create a second bridge linking the countries. The 760m long bridge which will connect the border towns of Foz do Iguaçu, and Presidente Franco should be up and running by 2022.


The bridge is hoped to unburden the Amizade International Bridge joining Foz de Iguaçu with Cuidad del Este which faces constant congestion. Bridge construction should cost R$462.9m and will be financed by the Itaipu hydroelectric dam which is shared by the two countries.
