Mintransporte evaluating flood, landslide damage (Colombia)
2010-11-22
Colombia's transport ministry (Mintransporte) is studying damage caused to the country's transport infrastructure by recent rain and floods, a ministry spokesperson told BNamericas.

 

The ministry has spent 72bn pesos (US$38.4mn) since June of this year to repair and clear up roads and highways affected by landslides and floods. However, officials are now reevaluating the damage after severe downpours over the last few days.

 

Mintransporte is working with regional and local governments to establish the extent of the repairs that will be required before requesting the necessary funding, the spokesperson said.

 

President Juan Manuel Santos declared 28 departments in a state of calamity on November 19, in an effort to accelerate the disbursement of public funds to face the emergency situation.

 

Colombia has experienced some of the worst rainfall registered in decades since the rainy season began in September. Around 1.3mn people have been affected so far, and more rain is expected over the next two weeks.
