Transport Minister Orders “Good Traffic Flow” On Ruta 27 For Holiday Travellers

The volume of traffic is expected to increase in the coming days as vacationers head for the beaches and resorts
The volume of traffic on the Ruta 27, an already overly congested route, is expected to increase in the coming days as vacationers head for the beaches and resorts.

QCOSTARICA – Now that school is out and Christmas less than a week away, many will be heading out to the beaches and resorts. With the Pacific coast the favoured, that means traffic in the coming days will get heavier on the Ruta 27,  the San José – Caldera, the main route west.

For that the Ministro de Transportes (minister of Transport), Carlos Segnini, has ordered Globalvia (the road concessionaire) to eliminate “pasos regulados” – best described as blocked passage due to construction and repairs – and take extra steps to ensure good traffic low on the Ruta 27.

“We are working at our best efforts to comply with the request of the minister. For this weekend there will be no ‘pasos regulados’ on the ruta 27,” said Globalvia in message.

The minister’s order also includes that Ministerio de Obras Públicos y Transportes (MOPT) officials, the Policía de Tránsito (traffic police) and Globalvia coordinate to define details of special operations for the coming weeks.
