Last time I posted about this unfinished highway being completed, the thread got hijacked by people with other ideas about government priorities. Perhaps this article from La Estella explains why community residents are anxious to see it finished. Not the best translation, but it's close. With plans in hand, inhabitants of Potrerillos in the province of Chiriqui, requested to be given a final date to complete the five kilometers of road and the construction of a bridge in the community of Palmira, which would complete the Ruta Sur and interconect the high lands of the province. The villagers took advantage of the presence of the President of the Republic during the opening events of the Fair in Boquete, last Friday to express their demands. "We have come to ask the President for a definitive date for the start of this work," said Carlos Kattegell president of the Committee of the civil society of Boquete and producer of the highlighted area, who added that they have already heard on four occasions that the project will proceed, but they had not been told when. "We do not want listen five, or six, or a dozen times that it proceeds' ...'we want deeds, not words," expressed the villager. He also said that the work is necessary for the amount of items produced in the region and because the student body that resides in the area walk long distances to reach various educational centers. The highway stretch concerns the community of Palmira Abajo down to connect with Potrerillos Arriba (in Cochea Arriba), going through the canyon of the Rio Tzingal. For his part, Román Salinas, producer of sheep and goat meat and leader of the civil society of Potrerillos Arriba, said that the road would help to promote the required production, since it would shorten the distances from the field to the collection centers. "What we need is to build the road and thus have term happy for the inhabitants of this land," said. Salinas said having the viaduct would shorten from 28 to 8 kilometers the trip for producers of coffee and specialty coffee from Potrerillos to the Beneficios located in Boquete. The Ruta Sur goes from Cuesta de Piedra in the district of Bugaba, crosses Santa Rita in the district of Boqueron, continues by Potrerillos corregimiento of Dolega and exits to the Via Boquete. The Section comprises 35 kilometers, of which is missing an installment in the region of Palmira about 5 kilometers. The inhabitants recommended to the Government, that if you do not have the resources, to appeal to the cooperation of the Southern Command of the Armed Forces of the USA, who carry out community works in various countries of Latin America. "We do not want to make any protests or closures, we only want a solution to our problems," he argued. During his speech the President Juan Carlos Varela, made reference to the construction of this project, but did not mention any date for the start of the work. http://laestrella.com.pa/panama/nacional/moradores-potrerillos-piden-fecha-definitiva/23916544 The President, Boquete's Mayor, and the area's Diputada all seem to be working well together and the community can only benefit from those relationships, imo.
