The slow process of reconstruction of the historic center of Puerto Plata causes inconvenience

PUERTO PLATA – . The reconstruction process of the historic center of Puerto Plata is causing inconvenience to residents of the streets Sanchez and Mella. The residents are complaining about the difficulties to reach their homes due to the pathways being destroyed, and a cloud of dust coming from work area is causing bad health conditions for people living in the neighborhood.

Mrs. Carmen Meyreles who lives in the building 36 near the end of the street Sanchez said taht authorities should ensure that these works are performed day and night to finish the project by the the first arrival of tourists at the bay of Maimon in the first week of December as it is planned.

Other citizens express dissatisfaction with the slow way these jobs run as some workers operate with shovels in hands instead of using heavy machinery.

The works started last December by Global Construction, but due to lack of coordination between the authorities of the Ministry of Tourism, the Municipality and representatives of EDENORTE, Claro – CODETEL and Telecable Puerto Plata (which was recently reported that they would have to bury their cable networks at the perimeter), the project works were postponed until late February. This work originally consigned to a cost of over 280 million pesos, now it appears to require  more money, as supposedly in trials in the streets of Sanchez and Mella, it was found that the water tubes were lying at a very shallow level which prevents work from being done fast.
