  • Rodovia Presidente Castelo Branco is a tollway in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. It was first opened on November 10, 1968, by, then, the Governor of the state of São Paulo, Abreu Sodré. The tollway name was given in memory of an ex-president of Brazil, Field Marshal Humberto de Alencar Castelo Branco. Running westbound from the city of São Paulo and finishing in Espírito Santo do Turvo, while heading towards the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, near the northern border of the southern state of Paraná, 'Rodovia Castelo Branco, as it is popularly known, is about 315 km long, and one of Brazil's safest tollways. The tollway passes by several cities, including: Barueri, Santana de Parnaíba, São Roque, Sorocaba, Tatuí, Avaré and Águas de Santa Bárbara. Near Barueri and due to the large population of São Paulo, Rodovia Castelo Branco is one of the busiest and widest of Brazil's tollways. Initially known as Rodovia do Oeste, it was built in three phases. The first phase was during 1963 to 1968. The second phase was during 1971, reaching the city limits of São Manuel and Avaré. The final and third phase, for 74 km, ended at highway SP-225, near the city of Santa Cruz do Rio Pardo.
