The “rearrangement” of traffic in Panama City, where more than 400,000 cars circulate daily, will cost more than $1.5 billion dollar, said yesterday the Panamanian Minister of Public Works, Federico Suarez. Suarez told PRC Radio the traffic plan would “exceed the figure of $1.5 billion dollars in projects we are going to be building over the next three years.” Minister Suarez spoke about the subject at a ceremony to deliver the order to proceed to the Colombian company ConalvĂ­as, for the project to expand an important avenue of capital, valued at $21 million dollars, which formally starts the greater plan. The projects include widening streets and building overpasses to ease traffic at intersections, interconnections between the roadways of high fluidity, and the improvement and adjustment of routes.

Editor’s Comment: The good news is that the government of Panama is going to spend more than $1.5 billion dollars on public works projects to improve the flow of traffic in Panama City, meaning that eventually maybe some of the traffic jams and congestion will be eased. The bad news is that the government of Panama is going to spend more than $1.5 billion dollars on public works projects to improve the flow of traffic in Panama City, meaning that starting from now until they are done building over the next three years, traffic in the city is going to be all screwed by thanks to the construction of these projects, as well as the construction of the new Panama Metro train system. That’s it, I’m buying a bike.
