Nueva Santa Cruz, Bolivia – Building a city from scratch

Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia is one of the world’s fastest growing cities. One thousand people move in every day. The extreme growth has called for extreme action – a whole new city is being built.

With the population doubling every 15 years, the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz is expanding far beyond its capacity. To cope with the development a new city is being built.

Working at a major site of Bolivia’s megaproject Nueva Santa Cruz, excavator operator Eovaldo Uche Moye is involved in the biggest construction project in the nation’s history.

A whole new Santa Cruz is about to be built in Bolivia. Every Latin American reseller of construction equipment fought for the deal, but Toyosa managed to close it.

6,000 hectares of land will soon be transformed into a whole new city in Bolivia. More than 100 hundred Volvo machines are working on the project Nueva Santa Cruz.

Santa Cruz has developed into a Latin American boom town. Bolivia’s biggest city is growing so fast that a sibling city is now being constructed. Here are the numbers behind the expansion.

Do you live in a big city? It is actually likely that you do. By 2030, urban areas around the world are projected to house 60 percent of all people. These are the fastest growing cities.

Groundwork has just started on what will become a whole new city in Bolivia. Meet the operator who moved to Santa Cruz to create a better life. Now, he is building his dream future.
