The national highway also has no public lighting.
The Guayana Castles are one of the region’s top tourist destinations, but poor road conditions and fuel restrictions have reduced the number of drivers and new visitors to the area.
The most damaged section is on the side of the municipality of Caroní from Los Aceites in San Félix to the arrival of the bridge that connects Casacoima, Delta Amacuro state, according to Simón Flores, a frequent passerby.
Due to the current state of the national highway that connects the two states, the commercial sector has also been hit by the low influx. Flores estimated that around ten businesses have closed their doors in the past months.
There is no light
At night they also don’t have public lights, it’s dangerous for people behind the wheel because there are unpaved patches, some dirt and potholes.
“On rainy days there are ditches that cover the tires of cars and the ditches get blocked, leaving more than one person in an accident,” said Flores.
Although he knows that the mayor of Casacoima keeps the main road in good condition, attention is needed in Caroní.
Taking an alternative route is also not a solution, because the entrance on March 25 is a worse situation.
It should be remembered that Libertador Avenue was rehabilitated, which is why it called on the corresponding authorities to follow the road.
