Mulatos mine tunnel formwork
Location: La Pintada, Antioquia
The Mulatos tunnel is an essential part of the Enlace Pacífico 2 road project, whose route covers 96.5 km between La Pintada - Primavera (Caldas) and La Pintada -Bolombolo (Venice), promises to unite Medellín with the Eje Cafetero and with the Pacific Coast.
It is 2.5 kilometers long and has two tubes (the right, 2,413 meters, and the left, 2,443 meters).
With these works, the travel time between Cali and Medellín for a five-axle truck will be reduced from 15 to 8 hours and a private vehicle will be able to make the journey in five hours.
