Authorities say the heavy rain that has fallen over the last two weeks saturated the ground until eventually causing a landslide at kilometre 13, in the direction towards Arenal, Sunday afternoon.

The pressure from water seepage was too great, finally washing out an eight metre (25 feet) section of the road.

This is the same place were a landslide took out part of the road in September, claiming the life of a father and his nine year old son, in September 2013.

The Consejo Nacional de Vialidad (Conavi), in a statement, said it is closely monitoring the situation and working on shoring up the remaining lane and expects to have the road rebuilt by the end of this week.
