THE NEW YEAR in Panama City began with a $1.4 million dollar signage program aimed at reducing the growing chaos on the capital’s streets.
The Transportation Authority (ATTT), has launched an “intense” horizontal and vertical road marking program which will mean some early traffic delay pain as work goes on, rewarded with what the ATTT hopes will be smoother traffic flow – if drivers pay attention.
Among the areas Identified where work will be in progress are:
-Carretera Transístmica (section from San Isidro, in the district of San Miguelito to the Aleman Johnson Bridge / Ancha-Colón stream).
-Avenida Brasil-Ramon Arias
-Avenue Israel (from the Via Brasil roundabout to the intersection with Calle 50)
-Avenue Transístmica (from the intersection with Ave. Martín Sosa to the intersection of Calle del Ingenio, with Ave. Fernández de Córdoba)
-Avenue October 12
