The tunnel will flush waste water into the River Plate that will be pre-treated by a plant being built nearby, by means of a deep sub-river outlet about 12 km in length, with the promise of helping improve the quality of life along the banks of the river.​

The outlet comprises the following structures: a load shaft about 50 meters deepand a tunnel 10.5 km long with an internal diameter of 3.8 m, excavated by a double shield TBM.
