The Mayor of Panama has suspended construction of two underground parking lots in the capital because of an alleged breach of contract.
The three-month delay in the delivery of plans for the construction of underground parking lot beneath Urracá park, by the contractor Plaza Parking, SA, has led to the suspension of construction work which it is hoped will be resumed at the end of January at the latest when it is expected that the Mayor will announced new measures to be taken.
Construction is to start of the 1,100 underground parking spaces granted in concession and from which 10% of the income will go to the municipality of Panama City.
Prensa.com reports: "The contracts were awarded using the turnkey model to Antonella de La Valle, representative of the company Estacionamientos Unidos S.A and Ivan Bernal of the company Plaza Parking SA".
The Mayor of Panama has announced two new concession projects for underground parking spaces in Panama City.
The institution announced that underground parking will be built at the site of the Street Vendors and Crafts Market on plaza 5 de Mayo, an initiative that already has the approval of the Municipal Council of Panama. Recently this local government approved an agreement to authorize it, signing a concession contract for the development of the parking lots.
The Mayor of Panama will make changes to the project of underground parking in the Urracá area, in order to attract the interest of construction companies.
Prensa.com reports that "the mayor of Panama, Roxana Mendez, revealed this Tuesday, February 26, plans to create another tender for companies interested in building the underground parking project in the Urracá park area " .
The Legislative Budget Commission has approved the request made by the government to purchase the equipment.
Scanning machines purchased with the approved funds will serve to increase security in the following prisons: La Joya, La Joyita, Nueva Esperanza (Colón) and the young persons detention center in Tocumen.
The government introduced a bill that will enable private companies to operate penitentiaries.
Once it is discussed by the cabinet, it will be forwarded to the National Assembly. The government intends the law to enter into force in 2011.
"Roxana Méndez, Government Spokesperson, detailed that the plan is to reform Law 55 from 2003 - which organizes the prison system -, to introduce a 'patronage' scheme, that will allow to pass prison management on to the private sector", reported Prensa.com.
