Experts asked to check highway for design flaws

The government agency that oversees concessions is asking engineers from the Universidad de Costa Rica to do a technical analysis of Ruta 27, the San José-Caldera highway.

This is a route with a disproportionate share of accidents, according to Roberto Gallardo, the minister of Planificación who sought the study. He asked the Consejo Nacional de Concesiones to bring in the experts from the Escuela de Ingeniería Civil of the university to look at the stretch from San José to Ciudad Colón.

If there are dangerous aspects found, the Consejo will ask the concession holder, Autopistas del Sol S.A., to make changes, the Consejo said.
