Peru allocates additional 10 million soles for Lima’s Costa Verde project


The Peruvian Government, through its Ministry of Housing, will allocate an additional 10 million soles to build an alternate road in the bay of Lima, commonly-known as Costa Verde.

According to Francis Allison, Minister of Houding, who declared to the press after a meeting with President Alan Garcia, this additional money will be added to 16 million invested this year and 5 million in 2008.

“The alternate highway will start in the district of Magdalena and will extend until San Isidro; it will contribute to solve traffic jams in Costa Verde,” he said.

These works will be possible thanks to an agreement with the Municipality of Miraflores that created the technical file, but the entire work will be financed and executed by the Ministry of Housing.

He added that this project was approved by the Autonomous Authority of Costa Verde.
