Improved quality of life
“It is of great satisfaction for CABEI to see how Costa Rica was able to materialize a mega-road project like this one in a year with adverse conditions such as 2020, and that in a few months thousands of Costa Ricans will be able to use it, improving their quality of life by reducing the time in transit, as well as the contamination of the environment”, indicated the Executive President of CABEI, Dr. Dante Mossi.
The project, which is part of CABEI’s Road Infrastructure Strategic Works Program, has financial support for up to US $ 163 million in four functional units and an additional one for US $ 70.5 million upon approval of an addendum for construction to Costa Rica.
This work will be complemented by the overpasses of the Zapote roundabout, inaugurated in March 2020; the Guadalupe roundabout, which is expected to come into operation in April of this year; and the roundabout of La Bandera that has just started its construction stage.
