Govt to spend US$15mn to repair rain damage (Costa Rica)
2010-10-04
Costa Rica's public works and transport ministry (MOPT) has said it will spend 7.7bn colones (US$15.2mn) to repair public infrastructure that was damaged by heavy rain in September, local paper La Nacion reported.

 

Several bridges and 34 of the country's main highways present damage due to landslides and collapses, the report said.

 

The most affected routes are the San Jose-Caldera and Interamericana Norte highways, and roads San Jose-Palmichal, La Gloria de Puriscal-Chires, Sabanilla-Parrita, Puriscal-Desamparaditos, San Ramon-Zarcero and Sarchi-Bajos del Toro.

 

The road closures cause economic losses of around US$6.5mn every day for the trade and export sectors, according to the Costa Rican export chamber.

 

President Laura Chinchilla has signed a US$19mn emergency loan with the World Bank to fund repair works. The resources will be managed by the national emergency committee (CNE) and work will be carried out by national road council Conavi, which is part of MOPT.

 

Costa Rica and other parts of Central America were hit by heavy rain caused by a low pressure system in the last week of September.
