Cemex’s subsidiary Cemex Latam Holdings S.A. (CLH) is participating in the construction of the Río Magdalena 2 Highway, one of the primary infrastructure projects currently under development in Colombia.

Cemex Colombia is supplying concrete for several essential elements of the project, including a viaduct over the Magdalena River that will become one of the longest bridges in the country.


It is participating in the first phase of this project. This phase encompasses the construction of a 1.4 km bridge over the Magdalena River, a new 14 km road, and 10 km of maintenance to the existing road, which connects with the new development.


The construction of the bridge involved the erection of piles and beams up to 30 m above the river, for which several types of concrete and additives were supplied to ensure optimal material performance.


“We are proud to participate in the construction of the Río Magdalena 2 Highway. This major highway will ease the connection between the Central Colombia and Atlantic coast regions and will foster new markets in both areas,” said Ricardo Gonzalez, Vice President of Construction Segment of CEMEX in Colombia. “We endeavour to participate in macro infrastructure projects such as this highway that apply our high-quality products and directly improve the quality of life in our communities.”
