Tender for design and reconstruction of the road Puerto Plata – Navarrete suspended
PUERTO PLATA – This news came like a bomb for the entire resident community – Suspension of the tender for the design and reconstruction to four lanes of the dangerous road between Puerto Plata with crossing Navarrete in Santiago. The reactions were swift among Puerto Plata citizens, such as former Secretary of Public Works and provincial senator; Engineer Miguel Angel Jimenez MESSON (Chios), criticized the construction of two sections of the Puerto Plata-Navarrete highway, had undergone a tender, surprisingly a bit hidden suspension of the tender will be announced on the website of the Ministry of Works Public and Communications (MOPC).
The sugar community leader from Montellano; José Gilberto Corniel expressed through his Facebook: “With this decision we are screwed, but I think it is a good reason to unite and fight so we’ll get the 4 lane road”.
Around this topic, Congressman José Ignacio Paliza who some time ago launched a campaign to build a four-lane, said that “while inaugurate works throughout the country, our future is dissipated in the asphalt so enough already… if necessary we paralyze the air … Together, we can. Puerto Plata is the sixth province in the country in terms of voting in all elections and must be lifted so they can deliver what they promised. “
The unofficial information that tries to justify the suspension of the bidding process to build this road, indicates that a former contractor who did the work, raised several legal challenges against the tender and as a song goes everything seems collapsed, and the 4 lane road project as well, and once again the government lied to the residents of Puerto Plata.
