BNDES has pledged up to Reais 5.37bn, based on a December 2008 calculation, although this does not include taxes and corrections, which make the final sum significantly higher. The loan has a 30-year term with an annual interest rate of 1%.

Bidding is currently underway for the 40-year contract to equip, operate, and maintain the line. A separate construction tender will be let next year.
