One Fixed, One To Go. A “Platina” Once Again Plays Havoc On The Country’s Main Road.

Costa Rica has a new “platina” bridge, not far from the original platina (bridge over the Virilla river, the Pablo II bridge in La Uruca, on the Autopista General Cañas, the most transited road in the country.

The detachment of an expansion joint (platina) in the Alajuela-San José direction forced the Conavi (a division of the Ministry of Transport) to carry out an emergency intervention in the structure.
