No for now to San Juan-Santiago highway
The Medina administration has announced that it will not go ahead with the construction of the proposed highway between San Juan de la Maguana and Santiago. Minister of Public Works Gonzalo Castillo said there is no longer time to build the highway, initially budgeted at US$400 million. The Medina administration has said it would not start any works if there was not enough time for their completion. The proposed route for the controversial highway cuts through several national parks and was strongly criticized by environmental experts.
Castillo said that the road between Monsenor Nouel province and the Cruce de Ocoa would be completed with the construction of the Sabana Lara-Rancho Arriba, Rancho Arriba-Juan Adrian and Juan Adrian-Piedra Blanca stretches, as reported in El Dia.
