Corridors will ease the capital’s traffic chaos
Santo Domingo.- Starting Monday, August 22, Public Works will establish eight corridors in the National District and Santo Domingo province to expedite traffic, install road signs and maintain and embellish them/
Public Works minister Gonzalo Castillo unveiled the pilot project on Monday. He said the plan was designed together with the Metropolitan Transit Authority.
He said the initiative is based on studies of Greater Santo Domingo’s traffic problem, with shared responsibility by the ministries of Justice and of Defense, City Hall and the National Police.
He said the corridors include major avenues, and whose goal is to improve traffic which if achieved just by 10%, would save the country US$840 million per year.
Castillo said Santo Domingo’s beltway has kept 17,000 vehicles out of the city’s central districts, despite that more autos arrive in the country every day. “115 men will work in the vigilance, landscaping, safety and maintenance of the new runners.”
