New seaport in Uruguay

The Uruguayan government has decided on the location of a new seaport. This seaport will be constructed in the department Rocha between km 236 and km 242 allowing direct access to the Atlantic Ocean. A decision on the design of this port and the consortium to construct this new enterprise is expected to be taken in 2012 or 2013 as it is considered a top priority by the current government. Two important seaports are located in Montevideo and Nueva Palmira in the department Colonia
