The concessionaire of the access road to Chile’s Santiago–Arturo Merino Benitez international airport, Autopista do Pacifico, will implement a free flow system in mid-2011, according to an official from the public works ministry's MOP concessions division.

The concessionaire plans on investing over $8.4 million in the expansion and improvement of the existing road to access the airport, and works will involve eliminating the toll booths so tolls can be charged using the electronic device known as TAG, which is already used on Santiago's urban expressways.

In addition the works will include the expansion and improvement of a bridge over the Mapocho River and the construction of a number of overpasses that will connect directly to the airport's cargo terminal.

The project is due to take one year to complete and will have a 38-year lifespan.
