China Communications Construction Company Ltd. (1800) may send engineers to study the feasibility of building a bridge linking Chile’s Chiloe Island to the South American nation’s mainland, Santiago-based newspaper Diario Financiero reported today, citing the head of Chile’s foreign investment committee Matias Mori.

The Chinese company may compete in bidding to develop the bridge, which would run 2.6 kilometers (1.6 miles) over the Chacao Channel in southern Chile, the newspaper reported.
