To do that it has to evaluate the actual cost of the work, to determine if it differs from the US$530 million dollars the government has contracted with the Brazilian company, OAS.

Determint the actual cost will be up to the professionals of the Association of Engineers and Architects (CFIA), National Laboratory of Materials and Structural Models (LANAMME) and the Technological Institute of Costa Rica (TEC).

According to the experts, they will be making a technical and financial audit that includes an analysis fo the desigs, calculations and cost of the work that would be done by the OAS.

The president of the CFIA, José Guillermo Marín, said “we called for a technical and financial audit, to that extent the first thing we do is a first exploration of what the scope of these studies and to that extent we will incorporate professionals, essentially the people with experience in roads and road construction. ”

According to Marín, the time to complete the study relies heavily on the information available. To that end, the CIFA board is asking for 100% access to all information, highlighing that this is an analysis of an important road, and not just a common road.
