Working closely together, the Ministry of Public Security (MSP), Municipal Police forces throughout the country, and the Policia de Transito (Traffic Police) took to the streets shortly after midnight in an operation to guarantee free circulation on national roads today Monday.

The road in front of the San Jose airport is a key point for prevention by police. In the photo by Casa Presidencial police buses are used to move officers to hotspots.

And possibly for the coming days if the national strike continues as threatened by the public sector labor unions.

The traffic police say it has 850 officers – the entire active force – in the different national routes and in key points.

In cases of tortuguismo (slowdowns) or blockades, interventions will be carried out with the Fuerza Publica (national) and municipal police, and with instructions from higher-ups so that it is a coordinated and non-provocative action.

The Traffic Police has a mapping of the different intersections that are traditional places for roadblocks, so that road users will be guided on alternate routes.

The entire national territory is being monitored, with main attention in:

  • Autopista General Cañas (Ruta 1) in the area of the Hospital México
  • Ruta 2 in the area of Ochomogo
  • Cartago – San José route
  • Alajuela – San José route
  • Areas around the San Jose airport
  • Areas around the Liberia airport
  • Barranca, in Puntarenas
  • Hospital de Puntarenas
  • Ruta 32 – San Jose – Limon – at different points normal for blockades
  • Ruta 27
  • The road to Peñas Blancas, the Nicaragua border

As to the commuter train, INCOFER president, Elizabeth Briceño, assured train service will be operating normally today.

But, according to social media, expect interruptions in service on all tracks.
