Catriel evaluates installing a toll on Route 151 to ensure the maintenance of the asphalt

The paralysis of national funds for road maintenance works directly affected the provinces. Catriel coexists with Route 151 and was affected by the stopping of one of the three stages of resurfacing planned for the road that contains important Vaca Muerta traffic. In this scenario, its mayor Daniela Salzotto confirmed that the installation of a toll is being evaluated.

Listen to Pablo Todero, deputy of Unión por la Patria de Neuquén on RÍO NEGRO RADIO:

The collection point, in principle, would be for all heavy transport and in a second instance for tourists. Salzotto explained to RÍO NEGRO RADIO that it is a viable option considering “the damage suffered by the route and its importance in Catriel’s transit infrastructure.”

The community leader said that “The (national) government that we are showing in terms of adjustment is regrettable” and that’s why “create a toll and a weighing point to divert heavy traffic” They are possible solutions to ensure a budget for works.

“If we achieve good maintenance of the route, the tourist could also pay, but we must provide guarantees for the maintenance of shoulders and so on,” He said and explained that in a possible project it would be made clear that Río Negro motorists would have a lower differential charge than the rest.

Salzotto also confirmed that with municipal funds a major pothole was created on National Route 151.

«A major purchase had been tendered to fix 217 potholes that we inherited from the previous management, and we decided to start on the route,” he said.

In parallel, the municipality of Catriel called on the companies along the route to also “start generating maintenance.”

Salzotto recently informed the governor Alberto Weretilneck who would begin maintenance works near the southern access to the city.

Work began last week. Around 8 kilometers will be bumpy, from kilometer 120 to the southern access, covering critical sectors of the road.
