Work on the La Cocuiza bridge begins quickly

The machinery began to remove the structure and the new bridge comes from Aragua

Complying with the instructions of President Nicolás Maduro, the Minister of Popular Power for Transportation, Ramón Velásquez Araguayán arrived at the La Cocuiza bridge, located on the Falcón-Zulia highway, to inspect the removal work of the structure.

“The work being carried out by the National Government to replace the bridge that collapsed in the Ana María Campos parish of the Miranda municipality of the Zulia state is proceeding at full speed, very close to the Mene de Mauroa parish in the Falcón state, an event that originated this Friday in the morning hours,” he indicated, accompanied by G/J Néstor Reverol, president of Corpozulia; MG Carlos Pérez Ampueda, vice minister for Risk Management and Civil Protection and Eng. Luis Noriega, president of the Latin American Railway Infrastructure company SA (Ferrolasa).

Together with a large team of specialized workers and machinery, he emphasized that the authorized crews have constant work to replace the structure in record time with one from the state of Aragua.

In this sense, he pointed out that the alternate route activated by the “Williams” highway to address the contingency has a 20-kilometer route and was conditioned for drivers to travel through the sector.

He also announced that Ferrolasa will be in charge of building a variant in a maximum period of 72 hours, in order to guarantee the land connection between both states.

It is important to emphasize that President Nicolás Maduro ordered an investigation into the possible causes of the accident, in which a woman died and three were injured as a result of the overturning of the vehicle in which they were transported.

Falcón's government extends its hand to Zulia

Governor Víctor Clark announced that since his administration he supports the work with the provision of machinery and human resources to achieve the restitution of the means of road communication.

In this sense, he appointed a comprehensive work commission that went to the place early in the morning to coordinate with the different government bodies and thus support the Zulia state.

Therefore, the regional director of Min-Transport, Henry Atacho, and the president of Vías de Falcón, Pauli Durango, are coordinating the efforts to support the technical work being done on the bridge that will be replaced.
