Panama City is still experiencing a number of growing pains to go along with its massive growth and recent success. A somewhat haphazard layout and traffic plan has led to frequent gridlock in several sections of the city.
PANAMA is moving to follow other cities around the world by limiting truck deliveries to night time.
The program would be introduced before start of Carnival in Panama City (from 18 to 21 nextFebruary18 -21) says the Transit Authority (ATTT) director Jorge Ricardo Fabrega.
“These measures will allow us to remove from circulation, at peak times, a large number of commercial vehicles,” he said.
In conversations with representatives of the Chamber of Commerce, Industries which brings together most of the companies that may be affected by these rules, it was found that for them it an economic benefit to get nighttime deliveries . “We hope the provisions will come into force before the carnival,” he said.
The measures will be part of a package implemented in the coming months to reduce traffic congestion caused by the construction of the Panama Metro.
