The Consejo Nacional de Vialidad (CONAVI) – Road Safety Council – said the work on the repair of the repairs of the repairs of the repairs will begin in June. The concession bid will start in the coming weeks.

José Luis Salas, executive director of the CONAVI, confirmed the project advancement on ADN Radio 90.7FM Friday.

platinaAccording to Salas, the CONAVI expects to have the concession work awarded next month with work beginning shortly thereafter. “In theory, the work should not affect the passage of vehicles over the bridge”, said Salas.

If you will recall, the bridge over the Virilla river on the autopista General Cañas – the so called “Platina” bridge – has undergone several repairs over the last couple of years.

None of the repairs took, including the last with the replacement of the deck with concrete and steel grates. And it is exactly that, the crumbling concrete between the steel, that has become a headache for drivers on the country’s busiest road.

Q asks, Is the Virilla bridge not part of the concession San José – San Ramón concession contract? We’ve lived with the Platina thing for a long time, what’s a few more years and make it the responsibility of the OAS, saving the government and the people a few colones? Or is this just more of the alleged mishandling of things by the Ministerio de Obras Publicas y Transportes (MOPT). The CONAVI is a department of the MOPT?
