Nicoya Municipality invests ₡128.4 million in Nosara drainage systems

In October the Municipality of Nicoya began the construction of a drainage system in Nosara, a project with an investment of ₡ 128.4 million, and that must be carried out in the area prior to any asphalting on those roads. Only in concrete ditches, the section is 1.2 kilometers (approximately).

This work could not come soon enough with many Nosareños taking to social media with reports of horrible road conditions and claims of abandonment by their government. Just a few months ago road conditions were said to have been a contributing factor in the death of Nuri Arrieta from Nosara, a local woman killed during a traffic accident.

The project has began in the sectors of Plaza Nosara – Arenales, Rest.  La Casona – Arenales. Between Plaza Nosara – Arenales, concrete gutters will be installed (3,250 m2), placement of concrete sewers with their respective heads, concrete aprons in and out, in addition to the approach fillings, under an amount of ₡ 89.7 million. Between the Restaurant La Casona – Arenales, the work consists of the construction of concrete-lined ditches (1,550 m2) for an amount of ₡ 38.7 million.  In total, for both sectors, they add up to ₡ 128.4 million.

 “Our Municipality continues with the progress and development of our canton and strengthening the access roads of such an important district. It is good to clarify that we are in the preparation of a regulation to receive those streets that were never delivered to the Municipality, for that reason, it is that you can not invest funds of Law 8114, since in this district only approximately 30% of the streets have been delivered and the most important route is National Route. For this reason in 2016 we saw ourselves in the obligation to demand from the MOPT the prompt intervention of this (main) route, thus achieving in several meetings an investment of great importance for Nosara. We make it clear that this situation of street delivery occurs in several sectors of the canton. We continue working with and for the inhabitants”, explained the Financial Director of the Municipality of Nicoya, José Ernesto Baltodano.
