Ahead of schedule, access to El Boquerón street from Monseñor Romero Boulevard to the San Salvador volcano is at 40% completion

The Minister of Public Works, Romeo Rodríguez, supervised this Tuesday the construction progress of the street access to El Boquerón from Monseñor Romero Boulevard.

According to the official, work on this vital access road, which will benefit over 8,000 thousand drivers, has now advanced by 40%. «In fact, we are 18% ahead of schedule» — he said.

The work will reduce travel times to an important tourist area in Greater San Salvador. «The idea of ​​this project is to reduce the vehicular traffic that is generated in Santa Tecla and provide road safety for families» — said the MOP minister.

The project will have a separation with a deceleration lane from Monseñor Romero Boulevard to Volcano Street, approximately 100 meters; in the opposite direction, the construction will be 30 meters.

 With the construction of this work, some 140,000 people, inhabitants of Santa Tecla and other areas, who seek to go to that area will benefit. In addition, it will increase tourism to the volcano street and help decongest the vehicular traffic that is generated in that area and the surrounding areas.

Rodríguez explained that the design and execution of this work was awarded to a company last year, for an amount of more than $643,000.
