Costa Rica: Road Construction to Limón Delayed

July 2017

The Chinese company in charge of the project will start construction work in the second half of 2018, and not in September of this year, as originally planned.

The delay is due to the fact that the Costa Rican State has not yet completed all of the necessary procedures to begin the project. There are up to 1,000 expropriations pending settlement, an archaeological study is still pending and there is still no plan to relocate public services such as water, electricity and internet cables.
