Trees Around Airport To Come Down

November 2, 2007

Several big trees off the highway leading to Juan Santamaría International Airport, just northwest of San José, are to be cut down to improve safety conditions at the airport, according to a statement from the Public Works and Transport Ministry (MOPT).

From now through the end of November, the ministry will be cutting down trees located along

General Cañas Highway

, from the tollbooth to the airport.

Drivers should watch out when traversing this stretch, as many of the trees to come down are very large.

Vice-Minister of Public Works and Transport Viviana Martín said the trees are being cut to “eliminate obstacles in points close to the runway at Juan Santamaría to comply with operational security requisites that should be respected at all airports in the country,” the statement said.
