When the program for repairing mountain roads began in 2009 in Cienfuegos province, 100% of the roads in Guamuhaya Mountain range had been destroyed by the winds and rains from hurricanes.
According to Vladimir Jorge Fuentes, Director of the Engineering Works Enterprise # 12 in Cienfuegos province, since April 2009 up to today, 2 brigades from the entity have paved 27 kilometers of the mountain ring that goes from Minas crossroads to La Sierrita.
“The government in the territory is interested in elevating this figure; if it is done, I have no doubts that in 2 years and a half the remaining 40 kilometers will be paved”, assures the official.
The work is everything but easy. The workers have to face danger and high temperatures. With their constant determination and the technological help of a paving machine that was repaired for this task, changes are noticeable in some mountain roads. If only this program would continue, so that the 67 kilometers of mountain roads in Guamuhaya Mountain Range get improved.
