The director of the Communication Office of the Táchira Protectorate, Yepfri Arguello, pointed out that since April 5, when the La Chivata bridge collapsed in the Cárdenas municipality, a multidisciplinary team was activated to attend to the emergency that arose.
He highlighted that the recovery of the Trasandina highway began with solid waste collection, asphalting and public safety, among other actions, between the Cárdenas municipality's Mayor's Office, the Transport PPP Ministry, Politáchira, Corpoandes and the Protectorate.
The Protectorate develops a Comprehensive Road Care Plan to guarantee the safety of the locals, with more than 40 Politachira troops. Corpoandes carries out the weeding and cleaning of the road.
More than 200 cubic meters of cold asphalt were also placed in 4.7 km on the alternate road to facilitate the transit of more than 5 vehicles.
Likewise, work continues on the La Chivata bridge with the removal of debris and the verification of the pipeline system in order to avoid impacting the more than 200 families and businesses that make life in the area, he said.
Arguello ruled that those who seek to get political credit for this fact, "end only in words and no action as they are accustomed to the people of Tachira, therefore from the Protectorate we advance in solutions for the well-being of all."
