Spanish barrier specialist Industrias Duero hopes to see further sales into Latin America following expected changes in regulations in some key countries.
The authorities in Colombia and Uruguay are at present discussing the adoption of barrier standards for use on the respective road networks of these countries. At present it looks as if the two countries will allow barrier products that meet either US or European safety standards to be used in the country. Should this ruling go forward, Industrias Duero will market its products in these countries.
The move by Colombia and Uruguay for acceptance of both US and European standard barrier products would follow on from a similar ruling in Chile and Peru. Both of these countries now allow the installation of US and European specification barriers.
