(QCOSTARICA) A study by the Policia de Transito (Traffic Police) and the traffic engineering department of the Ministry of Transport (MOPT) could mean extending the area of vehicular restrictions of the Greater Metropolitan Area (GAM).

In two weeks, the analysis is expected to determine whether the weekday restrictions may be also applied to the Ruta 27, the General Cañas and the Florencio del Castillo.

The Minister of Transport, Carlos Villalta, said any expansion on the current restrictions will be based on the recommendation of the report.

The aim is to reduce congestion in the outskirts of the capital city, in places like Escazu, Santa Ana, Lindora, Belen and Heredia on the west (Ruta 27 and the General Cañas) and Curridabat and Tres Rios, for example, on the Florencio del Castillo.

Currently the vehicular restrictions are in an area bounded by the Circunvalacion (ring road) on the west, south and east and Tibas on the north.

Other measures currently applied by the Central Government is a staggered work schedule for many public service employees, a program that hasn’t gone over as expected.
