Start of the construction of the Transamazônica (BR 230) Highway.
President-dictator Médici attended the ceremony at the margin of the Xingu River, where a marker of the start point of this highway was placed. At the time of the planning of this very controversial and elaborate project, there was the intention to create a transversal connection of more than 8000 km between Northeast Brazil and Peru/ Ecuador. There would be an asphalted highway. These plans underwent changes. The highway is unpaved and inaccessible during the raining season. Thanks to many off-road drivers, there is considerable damage to the Amazon forest at the margins of this highway.
