La Romana, Dominican Republic.-President Danilo Medina on Monday cut the ribbon on the San Pedro- La Romana highway, which is part of the Tourism Corridor of the East and will cut the driving time from La Romana to Santo Domingo to 50 minutes and 40 to Punta Cana.

In his inaugural speech at the village of Cumayasa, Public Works minister Gonzalo Castillo said the road will also speed up transport between the East region and Santo Domingo, and bring communities closer to hospitals, universities and airports.

He said the 22-km road was built with the highest safety and quality standards with expanded shoulders, featuring curbs and a median in urban areas. "A better, safer and faster displacement for those who travel through this route will be a determining factor the people of San Pedro and La Romana provinces to see economic growth and the creation of more jobs."

The Public Works Ministry didn't reveal the cost of the work.

Is that not Rainairi in the picture? What does he have anything to do with a highwy from SP to La Romana? He does not build roads, he is a developer of real estate, hotels and resorts in Cap Cana.

Rainieri was one of the stronger pusher for the Circuito Turistico del Este, which should really be named Circuirto del Progreso Presidente Leonel A Fernandez!

Maybe in 50 years....

That drive will be a leisure drive once the palm and other trees are fully grown... beautiful non-stop drive... got lucky the Circunvalacion La Romana was open last week before inauguration, and driving back to La Capi yesterday, I was able to appreciate how nice it is and will be even better later...
