It has been announced that in the coming weeks publication will be made of a new national building code, which is divided into different documents according to the type of material used.
Maycol Rugama, from the Department of Studies and Technology Construction Standards at the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure (MTI), told Laprensa.com.ni that with this update documents will be separated into different standards for reinforced concrete, masonry, structural steel and electricwire systems."
The Ortega administration has announced that using financing from the CABEI a 52 kilometer hydraulic concrete highway will be built from Laguna de Perlas and Kukra Hill, in the Caribbean.
According to the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, the loan from the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (BCIE) will be for $65 million and will be used for construction of the road.
The country needs to double the 4,000 kilometers of existing roads in order to improve land connectivity among the 153 municipalities, mainly in the Caribbean.
Although public investment in road infrastructure has increased in recent years, in order to exploit the full potential of economic development, the existing road network needs to be doubled in order to achieve an "acceptable land connection".
With the plans to build a highway between the Pacific and the Caribbean coast in mind, a proposal has been made to build a port in Bluefields, instead of the one planned in Monkey Point.
The Nicaraguan government announced that it has asked Taiwan to collaborate in order to finalize the project, and that the decision to change the location responds to the new road that will connect the Pacific and the Caribbean, precisely with the city of Bluefields.
The National Assembly has approved a loan from the Central American Bank for Economic Integration for hydraulic cement paving of 45 kms of the stretch passing through La Gateada- Naciones Unidas - Bluefields.
From a statement issued by the National Assembly of Nicaragua:
The Nicaraguan government is preparing transportconcessions which will be granted from 2015 to cover the route that will connect Costa Rica once the Las Tablillas-San Pancho border post is finished.
It is expected that in the first three months of 2015 the results will be ready of a study that will determine the number of buses needed to meet the demand of passengers emerging with the opening of the route between San Pancho and Las Tablillas. With the results the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will be able to deliver the corresponding permits.
A road connecting Bluefields in the east to the Pacific will be the main factor for development in the area.
The Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure (MTI) will invest $20 million on building an 80-kilometer track that will connect the Nicaraguan Caribbean with the Pacific, while it obtains financing for the construction of a paved road.
Exporting through a port in the Caribbean would reduce the cost currently paid per container in ports in Honduras or Costa Rica by between $800 and $1,000.
This was explained by Pablo Fernandez, chief of Transportation and Infrastructure, however, no formal announcement has been made about its construction. "...A truck with goods can take 18 hours to cross the border into Costa Rica and up to 12 hours to pass into Honduras," reports Elnuevodiario.com.ni.
