Guatemala road development plan announced
First publishedon www.WorldHighways.com
Guatemala is pushing ahead with a plan to develop its road network. The expansion programme will see over US$225 million being spent on improving the country’s road connections during 2017. The work calls for the construction of 1,600km of roads, which will help improve access to many rural areas. Tolled highways will also be completed in Barberena and Chimaltenango. Funding will come partly from the general road authority, Direccion General de Caminos (DCG) and from the cooperation fund Fondo de Solidaridad. The plan is being managed by the Guatemalan Ministry of Communications, Infrastructure and Housing (CIV).
