Guatemala: Elevated thoroughfares will increase number of vehicles in circulation.

The Elevated thoroughfare project by businessman Juan Fernando Letona could increase the number of cars on the road.

Thursday, September 11, 2008

This was the conclusion by Enrique Godoy, president of Urban Proposal, and Francisco Rodas, a consultant for the United Nations Development Program.

Rodas points out that the project by Letona is interesting and can be joined with the municipal projects of the Anillo Periferico (Outer Ring) and the Transmetro, as a solution to the congestion problems.

The number in circulation grows by 300,000 every year, and in the future more elevated ways could be added, said the businessman.

There are very few metropolitan areas where there is still room for growth. Green spaces are decreasing and the streets are becoming narrower. Many of the residential developments are already moving to the adjacent municipalities, especially in Santa Catarina Pinula.
