The desire of Nosarans to see the two kilometers of the center of the community paved came up against a new obstacle, so they were only able to pave 900 meters of what they hoped to do. The reason was that the remaining kilometer didn’t have a base prepared that would permit pavement.

This means that they won’t be able to pave the remaining portion until they have the minimum base of cement required by the Ministry of Public Works and Transportation (MOPT).

Julio Viales, Regional Director of MOPT, said that “it’s a shame that the base wasn’t prepared with cement.” What was there, according to him, was “a treatment of stone impregnated with emulsion.”

According to Viales, they must remove 50 centimeters of the current base, which is very claylike, and proceed to put down material from the Nosara River, together with cement, to be able to continue with the pavement.

Viales explained that a channel and gutter also need to be built, as well as sidewalks along the trajectory.  In addition, he confirmed that the total amount for the works surpassed 160 million colones ($320,000).

According to Viales, the cost of the works increased because the pavement had to be brought from Tajo El Chopo, located in Cañas.

New Roads Committee Created to Speed Up Final Pavement
Meanwhile, Marcos Avila, president of the Nosara Integral Development Association (ADIN), explained that on December 16th the Roads Committee was formed, which will have the objective of looking for funds and labor for the project of the cement base and thereby achieve the longed-for pavement, especially during dry season when the dust makes an average of 186 Nosarans sick per month, as reported by Lisany Mejia, in charge of the Nosara EBAIS clinic.

Avila assured that the ADIN granted the horse parade of the fiestas in Nosara in January to the committee so they can administer it and raise funds. In addition, he commented that they hope the meet again with MOPT during the first weeks of January to sign a cooperation agreement to carry out the work.

On the other hand, Viales denied the rumors of pavement of the national route 160 that connects Samara with Nosara for next year, since, according to him, at this time the job isn’t even up for bid, and the process moves at a slow speed.
