Dominican Rep to invest over US$50mn in Santo Domingo streets

The Dominican Republic announced a 3bn-peso (US$55mn) investment for urban infrastructure in Santo Domingo province. 

Public works minister Deligne Ascención said the funds will be used to build and repair streets and sidewalks, as well as to pave dirt roads. He added that another 25mn pesos will be invested in the Vietnam and Mata Los Indios sectors.

“The investments of the ministry of public works are focused on building sidewalks and paving streets which, according to locals, have been requested for more than 30 years during previous governments that did not attend the demands,” Ascención was quoted as saying by news outlet Al Momento. 

The minister was speaking during a meeting with local residents where it was agreed to form a commission to follow up on the works and spending.
