C-489 Highway

Giving Communities a Voice


On January 16, a Barrick transport truck struck a guard-rail on the heavily travelled C-489 Highway in northern Chile. The driver was uninjured, but the impact left an eight-meter gap in the guard-rail, putting passing vehicles at risk of veering off the two-lane highway, which snakes through the Andes Mountains near Barrick’s Pascua-Lama project.
