On the government website, Presidencia.go.cr, we learn that cleaning work and earthworks have, that will lead to the construction of the fourth phase of the Circunvalación Norte project.

As per the website, “This stage -inspected this Wednesday morning by the President of the Republic, Carlos Alvarado Quesada – contemplates the roundabout, an overpass and a 400-meter four-lane road. It will connect Calle Blancos with Route 32 and the Triángulo de la Solidaridad”.

The Triángulo de la Solidaridad was the scene Monday morning of a police action to evict the dozens of squatters, some living there for more than a decade, building semi-permanent structures, with electrical and water services.

Triángulo de la Solidaridad tugurio (settlement) is in the path of the new road. A family resettlement process led by the Ministry of Housing and Human Settlements (MIVAH) will house the squatters evicted on Monday.

“We have achieved a successful concerted resettlement, allowing families to have access to the housing subsidy information so that they can carry out the procedures before the competent institutions and free the necessary strip of land so that the works can be started by the MOPT,” said the Minister of Housing and Human Settlements, Irene Campos Gómez.

Meanwhile, the First Lady, Claudia Dobles, highlighted the coordination between the institutions that allowed the eviction of families with humanitarian focus, guaranteeing the integrity of the people.

“This authorization is part of the government’s process to reactivate infrastructure works, such as this one from Circunvalación Norte that was many years behind, despite its great impact on the national economy,” she said.

Work on the Circunvalacion north began last September with the construction of the 1.3 km section between Leon XIII and Colima de Tibas, currently 80% complete. In March, work began on the 2.25 km section of the Colima de Tibas to the Triángulo de la Solidaridad.

The obstacle in the road is the La Uruca to Leon XIII. Eight expropriations have yet to be settled. The government says construction will commence on this section once the legal proceedings are complete, but would not indicate a time frame.

The project cost is US$163 million dollars, financed through the Banco Centroamericano de Integración Económica (BCIE), as part of the Programa de Infraestructura Vial Estratégica – Strategic Road Infrastructure Program. The contractor on the project is the  Estella – H. Solis Consortium.
