The Ministry of Public Works will invest $12 million on building extra lanes, changing roads and traffic lights in areas of the metropolitan area with high road congestion.

Wednesday, December 9, 2015

The works aim to minimize traffic congestion problems in 22 areas where there is the most road congestion in the greater metropolitan area, and according to officials from the Ministry of Public Works (MOPT), this plan of "fast works" will start in the second half 2016. reports that "... The MOPT's idea is to group projects by sector, then hire several construction companies. This procedure will be undertaken in the first quarter of next year. "

"... The improvements proposed in the 22 sites should be considered as new works rather than maintenance. For this reason, the MOPT must obtain permission from the Comptroller General of the Republic (CGR) to use the National Highway Council (CONAVI) budget for these initiatives. "
