Other changes - Additionally, on Monday 27, Tuesday 28 and Wednesday the 29th of June, the road 12 de Diciembre will be blocked, located at the junction with Transistmica at the traffic light next to the Bolivar building. This road will be closed to do work related to the project to build the new subway line in Panama. They will install new water pipes as part of the auxiliary work that needs to be done. For this reason, it was reported they will launch the so-called traffic management plan, so that only pedestrians, residents and shopkeepers can access the area. The plan was approved by the Ground Transit and Transportation Authority.
The Secretariat of the metro asks drivers to remember the announcements related to road closures, and to avoid the areas where work is being done to reduce traffic jams. Since last May 19, work began in the area of Transistmica to build the Northern Trench of the Metro Line One, to allow for the tunneling work to start with the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM). Because of this work, temporary traffic lanes were opened in the area for vehicular traffic. As planned, construction will extend over the next two years. (La Prensa)
