MTOP spending US$21mn on Quiroga-Pichincha hwy (Ecuador)

Ecuador's transport and public works ministry (MTOP) is spending US$21mn to complete work on two stretches of the Quiroga-Pichincha highway in Manabí province.

Work on the first, 6.5km stretch includes improving inclines, performing maintenance on access roads, and other improvement works.

The second stretch totals 26.5km, and work includes building the Carrizal bridge, among other improvements, government newspaper El Ciudadano reported.

Work is being carried out by the army's engineering corps (CEE).

The highway will connect Manabí with Santo Domingo and Guayas provinces, benefitting the agriculture, livestock and tourism sectors.

MTOP signed 12 roadworks contracts with CEE in 2007 as part of President Rafael Correa's efforts to boost national development using local labor.
