New Sixaola binational bridge works advancing

(QCOSTARICA) Work on the Sixaola binational bridge, that will connect Costa Rica with Panama over the Sixaola River, is advancing with the completion of the main structural component.

The project has had to overcome delays in Panamanian territory, repercussions from the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Alejandro Rossi, director of the United Nations Agency for Project Services (Unops), which is in charge of managing the project, made the announcement on August 7.
