On 27 September 1993 Argentina’s Ministry of Economy, Public Works & Services awarded the contract for the construction, operation and maintenance of the “Buenos Aires North Access Road” to the Autopista del Sol S.A. concession holder.

The main goal was to alleviate traffic entering the city of Buenos Aires from state roads and from the northern residential districts, and to facilitate the weekend exodus.

The concession included all of Avenida General Paz (24.1 km) and Avenida Panamericana from the intersection with Avenida General Paz up to Campana (60.9 km), on the sections towards Pilar (24.4 km) and Tigre (10.5 km), for a total length of 119.9 km. Funding was provided by the shareholders and a bank pool coordinated by Citybank.

The concession has a 22-year term, starting from July 1996. Tolls are collected at 19 tollbooths.
