Siguatepeque grows with Highway CA-5 North

The new highway will have four lanes, two in each sense and a median that will allow five turns to the left, with roundabouts located at Siguatepeque’s northern and southern entrances.

The Major of Siguatepeque and his community are enthusiastically involved in the project to build the new road.

Siguatepeque, August 23, 2007.-  In order to present the designs to expand and improve the section of Highway CA-5 passing through Siguatepeque and to be financed with MCA-H resources,  Major Guillermo Martínez held  a meeting at the municipal offices with representatives of business and home  owners  located along said section.

On behalf of local residents, Major Martínez expressed their concern about the fast traffic criteria applied to current road designs, and requested reconsiderations in order to present other alternatives to those business owners that have made important tourist and restaurant activity investments in the area.

MCA-Honduras specialists gave a detailed presentation about each road segment, showing the plans in which all businesses are identified.  They also explained how the new road is expected to function, clarifying doubts and explaining the Transportation Project timeframes.

Attendees contributed with comments on proposals such as:  restoring the U-turn at the third exit of the city connecting with the hospital; locating bus stations at La Esperanza detour at the southern entrance, at Plaza Abudeye and at  the northern exit;  correcting the  ramp at the curve of the main entrance intersection, where several accidents have occurred.  All these details will be analyzed in order to be incorporated in the final designs.
