Major highway maintenance urged

The Cámara Costarricense de la Construcción said Tuesday that it was concerned by the lack of maintenance on major highways. The chamber cited Ruta 32, Ruta 1 from San José to San Ramón and other key stretches.

Coincidentally, there was another landslide on Ruta 32 north of San José Tuesday, but the debris was cleared by noon, said the Consejo de Vialidad.

The construction chamber, of course, has some self interest because its members would do the maintenance.

The government is trying to figure out how it will do a major reconstruction job on Ruta 32, the main highway to the north and Limón. Frequent landslides make the road dangerous. Then there is the plan to widen the road from Moín and Río Frio.

What the chamber seeks now is just repair of the driving surface.
