A proposal has been made for the extension of the route to Ciudad Pedro de Alvarado, valued at $280 million and abandoned by the original contractor, to be divided into sections and assigned to local construction companies.
The construction company Sigma, whose legal representative is involved in the State Cooption case has desisted from continuing the work of expanding to four lanes the route to Ciudad Pedro de Alvarado, for which it had been allocated $280 million from a CABEI loan.
The construction sector considers that the amounts allocated for road works in the 2016 public budget are lower than in 2015 and will not be enough to complete the works the road network needs.
Construction companies predict that public investment in 2016 will be lower than in 2015 and insufficient to provide the actual maintenance that the country's road infrastructure needs. According to analysis carried out by the Guatemalan Association of Construction Contractors (AGCC), "... There are about 3500 bridges in the country and there is only enough [money] to maintain 15% of them. This neglect has led to five bridges currently being on the verge of collapse. "
The Guatemalan Association of Construction Contractors has pointed to a weaknesses in procurements by the state.
According to an article in S21.com.gt "... the president of the Guatemalan Association of Construction Contractors (AGCC), Alvaro Mayorga, ... said that while government institutions meet important requirements to make the projects transparent, because they don’t have a planning and design office, the projects lack of quality and their costs are too high".
