It would start in Puerto Armuelles (in the Pacific), and go through David and Boquete to end in Bocas del Toro, in the Atlantic Ocean.
The Ministry of Communications, Infrastructure and Housing (CIV) plans to build 200 km of new roads in 2009 and to provide maintenance for close to 10 thousand additional kilometers.
