An Heredia resident who uses a bridge over the Quebrada Seca in Barva got fed up with the condition of the span and filed a Sala IV appeal. He said the bridge was putting at risk the lives of those who crossed it because of lack of maintenance and that he feared a catastrophe.
The Sala IV agreed, in part because there is a technical report on the poor state of the bridge. The court ordered the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad, the road agency, to issue orders immediately so that within a month’s time work will begin to replace the bridge.
The court also issued similar orders to Francisco José Jiménez Reyes, minister Obras Públicas y Transportes and the municipalities involved.
