ENA builds a new pedestrian bridge in the North Corridor for the Kuna Nega community

A year ago, the National Highway Company (ENA) began the construction of an elevated pedestrian crossing in the North Corridor, in response to an explicit request from the inhabitants of the community of La Esperanza in Kuna Nega, who daily exposed their safety when crossing that road.

After an investment of nearly one million balboas, the work has recently been completed, directly benefiting some 800 families from the Kuna Nega community.

The general manager of ENA, Luis Alberto Abrego Guerra, explained that this pedestrian bridge is located at kilometer 3 of the Madden – Chilibre section of the North Corridor and was built entirely with ENA’s own resources.

The manager of the state company recalled that the initiative for the construction of this pedestrian overpass came from the community itself, which, through a note sent to the President of the Republic, Laurentino Cortizo Cohen, explained the reasons -mainly road safety – By those who requested the intervention of the authorities and thus significantly reduce the risk of the residents to be victims of an outrage.

For her part, María Sánchez, teacher and social leader, representing the community of La Esperanza, in Kuna Nega, thanked the authorities for their legitimate commitment to the population, going beyond promises to concrete works. She also highlighted the direct impact on people’s quality of life, mainly on the student population in the area.
