The Ministry of Infrastructure will announce another request from a private investor interested in building and operating a railway through the new instrument of railway authorization.
The folder has been making serial ads since the beginning of the month, when it launched a campaign it called September Ferroviário in the wake of the authorization regime of the provisional measure.
There are already 14 applications with planned investments of around R$ 80.5 billion and more than 5,000 kilometers of new tracks in 12 states, according to the ministry.
With an investment of R$ 13.5 billion, the new proposal made by the company Petrocity, which operates in the port sector, intends to connect Brasília to the ports of Espírito Santo in a stretch of 1,108 km in length that passes through the Federal District, Goiás and Minas Gerais bound for Barra de São Francisco (ES).
According to the folder, the company also promises to invest another R$700 million in six units for transshipment and cargo storage along the way.
The orders will be analyzed by the National Land Transport Secretariat.
