Panama City’s Amador Causeway gets a new look
Last Saturday, April 8 and Sunday, April 9, was the formal inauguration of the remodeling of the Panama City’s Amador Causeway, which included the expansion of the four-lane road and improvements in some areas of this tourist area.
The design and return is conceived as an urban traffic solution sufficient for the flow of vehicles
Major changes to the original design of the new Panama City’s Amador Causeway will allow more road safety for visitors to this tourist attraction of the capital city, Ramón Arosemena, head of the Ministry of Public Works (MOP), said Friday.
Arosemena detailed among the improvements the construction of a bicycle lane, the installation of LED luminaires for energy saving, rehabilitation of the pedestrian sidewalk with the existing bicycle lanes, landscaping from the Bio Museum to Isla Flamenco and the renovation of the fishing pier.
He stressed that the work, whose investment is 72.5 million balboas, did not establish in the original contract maintenance for three years, which “led the MOP to include it in this new stage” for an amount of 2 Millions of balboas.
In addition, its design and return is conceived as a solution of urban traffic sufficient for the flow of vehicles, considering current and future demand for the next 20 years.
The Panama City’s Amador Causeway, has three hotels with more than 300 rooms. In this emblematic area located at the entrance of the Panama Canal, on the Pacific Ocean, stands the unique work in Latin America of the architect Frank Gehry, the Biomuseo, where visitors can also know the history of the emergence of the isthmus of Panama.
On the site, people can go walking, jogging, skating and bicycling, apart from tasting the food they prepare in restaurants.
Some tourists emphasized that the project is ” very beautiful” and they invite Panamanians to keep it “clean” as it has been until now.
Like the Phoenix bird, Panama City’s Amador Causeway rises from the ashes.
