QCOSTARICA – After ten years of waiting, the road that connects Paquera to Naranjo, in the Nicoya Peninsula, may get paved next year. At least that is the expectation by the Ministry of transport and Public Works (MOPT).

MOPT engineer, Carlos Villalta, explained the National Highway Council (CONAVI) has the project the shelf for the last ten years, complicated by expropriations and lack of funding.

The cost to complete the 21 kilometre gravel road, that includes guard rails, shoulders, road signs, overpasses for animals and asphalt paving, is US$15 million dollars, not including the expropriation, which according to Villalta has not yet been completed.

The paving of the road is of great importance for the area, whose main activity is tourism. It will also allow an interconnection between the districts of the peninsular and a major comfort for people to reach the Paquera medical centre.

The road from Paquera, the dock from the port city of Puntarenas, leads to the tourist areas of Tambor, Mal Pais, Playa Naranjo, Playa Carmen and Santa Teresa, a beach area that has been frequented by many international personalities and where actor Mel Gibson has his Costa Rica home.

The funding will come from the US$450 million dollar fund of the Program for Transport Infrastructure (Programa de Infraestructura de Transporte – PIT) with funds from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), approved by the Legislative Assembly last year .
