Work on the Circulavacion Norte Resumes

QCOSTARICA – The Minister of Public Works and Transportation (MOPT), Rodolfo Méndez Mata, signed Friday afternoon the extension of the addendum with United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) for the supervision services of the works in the Circulavacion Norte.

Work on the San José north ring road project was suspended on Monday when the Comptroller’s Office did not sign off the extension of the supervisory contract with the UN agency, which had expired on March 27.
