Terminal access in Moín 75% done

HIghway officials say that the road to the proposed site of APM Terminals in Moín is about 75 percent completed for now.

The work remaining is to erect two bridges over the Río Moín, said the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad.  This is the access to the proposed $1 billion container handling facility that is being put in by a Dutch firm.

The roadway now is two lanes and is gravel. Eventually as the terminal facility is competed the roadway will be four lanes and paved.

The project was a delicate one because trees had to be cut and animals relocated, said the agency.

The terminal is opposed vigorously by workers who now have jobs on the public docks. The new facility is a concession. The Dutch firm will create an artificial island in the sea that will connect to the new road.
