The Railway is around 2.120 km long and connects 9 Brazilian states with the aim of helping to transport agricultural and mineral products!

Brazil, with its vast territorial extension and geographic diversity, faces significant logistical challenges. However, to overcome these barriers and boost economic development, the country invests in North-South Railway, an ambitious undertaking that connects nine Brazilian states. In this article, we will explore the details of this smart project and its impact on agricultural and mineral flow, according to Projeto Urbano.

The North-South Railway in numbers

  • With about 2.120 km long, the North-South Railway is one of the largest in Brazil.
  • Your total investment has exceeded $ 11 billion, demonstrating the country's commitment to railway infrastructure.
  • Construction of the railway began in 1987, but has not yet been fully completed, highlighting the challenges faced in the process.

Draining agricultural and mineral production

  • The central objective of the North-South Railway is to enable the efficient transport of agricultural and mineral production.
  • Regions such as the Central-West and North, rich in commodities, will be able to access ports in the Northeast and Southeast in a more agile and economical way.
  • The railway extends over 13 sections, connecting cities such as Barcarena (PA) to Estrela do Oeste (GO), creating a strategic route for the flow of these products.

Challenges and opportunities

  • Expanding the railway network is crucial for Brazil's development, but faces obstacles such as bureaucracy and financing.
  • The private sector takes over the bullet train project that will connect São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro, thus showing the public-private partnership as a solution.
  • Rail transport is more environmentally sustainable, contributing to the country's climate goals.

Would it be a good option to invest in this project again?

Therefore, the North-South Railway represents a milestone in national integration and logistics optimization. Although with appropriate policies and continuous investments, Brazil will be able to count on a modern and efficient railway system, uniting its regions and boosting economic growth.
