Drivers fill potholes in the tourist route
Caused by heavy rains, the tourist route between Puerto Plata and Santiago became almost impassable for traffic. In many places, parts of the road have been washed away and the road is covered with potholes. The rains has washed away many pieces of asphalt. Residents who live along the road and drivers of public transport have asked the municipality of Puerto Plata several times to repair the Tourist route. But the municipality says it is the responsibility of the provincial government. And you get it, the provincial government answers that Puerto Plata is responsible. So nothing happens. In desperation, the drivers of public transport have decided to fill the potholes themselves. In recent days in several locations of the tourist route drivers of public transport have been working with shovels, pickaxes, wheelbarrows with sand and bricks to fill up the potholes in the road. Thanks to the efforts of these drivers the ‘Carretera Turística’, is passable again for traffic.
