Nicaragua is planning to build a new coastal highway that will improve transport connections between capital Managua and Rivas in the south of the country. Work on the design of the first section of the new highway is now commencing. The route will run close to Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast and is intended to boost trade and transport. The contractor that will carry out the construction work has yet to be finalised although initial plans had suggested that the firm Inocsa-Edicro would be responsible. A 131km highway running south from Managua and linking eight towns and cities was proposed initially but the final route has yet to be revealed. The Pan-American Highway runs through Nicaragua’s capital Managua and carries heavy traffic heading both north and south to its borders. Building a new highway to improve transport to Nicaragua’s southern neighbour, Costa Rica, will help boost the country’s economy.
