Panama To Start Road Rearrangement in 2011

In the summer of 2011, authorities will begin construction of the remainder of the highway known as "Corredor del Norte".

Friday, October 22, 2010

Jorge Ricardo Fábrega, director of the Transportation Authority (ATTT), explained that while these rearrangement works are conducted, the highways known as Northern and Southern corridors will be used as the main backup roads.

Federico Suárez, head of the Public Works Ministry, told that "all the infrastructure projects being undertaken by the state (which include preparation works for the Metro and Metro Bus transportation systems and 16 bridges) will require between 2.5 and 3 years to be completed. To meet the deadline, they will use squads working 24 hours a day, on three rotating shifts".
