Minister of Transport announces emergency for construction of bridge and diversion on BR-304 in RN

-

The Minister of Transport, Renan Filho, announced this Monday afternoon (1st) emergency measures for the Riacho do Bom Fim bridge, on BR-304/RN, in Lajes. He guaranteed the construction of a new bridge on an emergency basis and a detour along the federal highway itself during the works, to allow people to travel through the region. Deadlines have not yet been announced.

“We are going to make an emergency contract for the construction of the bridge, so that we can shorten the deadline. Furthermore, we are going to promote a detour via BR-304 itself in a short space of time”, explained the minister.

The bridge collapsed this Sunday after heavy rains raised the level of the river that passed under the equipment. With the destruction of the bridge, the section on BR-304 has been closed since then. Alternative routes were announced to motorists and other riders this Monday.

“The Dnit teams are already working on the project for the emergency construction of a new bridge and are monitoring the other existing structures on the highway. In parallel, aiming to guarantee trafficability for highway users, alternative routes to the closed section were developed together with the Federal Highway Police (PRF) and the Government of RN,” said Renan Filho.

The minister also announced that he will visit Rio Grande do Norte in the coming days to deliver sections of Reta Tabajara and will take the opportunity to monitor the situation of BR-304 in Lajes.
