Honduras to modernise road infrastructure
Honduras is to improve two of its main roads by adding lanes and upgrading some sections with help from a USD 75 million loan from the Inter-American Development Bank.
The project will reduce travel time and the cost of operating vehicles along the country's main logistical and tourism corridor, thus boosting productivity and the Central American country's integration in the region.
Besides adding lanes, the plan calls for strengthening the roads' pavement, improving intersections, drainage equipment and bridges, and carrying out road safety work. The loan will also finance training programmes and internships to encourage more women to enter the workforce. (ben)
