Fogo Island: Sumbango road will be passable before the Mosteiros municipality festivities – responsible

São Filipe, July 6 (Inforpress) – Work on the unblocking of the national road section EN1-FG01, from Sumbango, will begin next week and will be concluded before the Mosteiros Municipality Day festivities, celebrated on 15 August.

The guarantee was given by Eduardo Lopes, the chairman of the Board of the Institute of Roads (IE), who visited the section Wednesday and met with the City Hall to explain the reasons for not yet intervening to remove the materials provoked by the “complex mass movement” called the rock collapse, as well as its interdiction.

Since the beginning of the event, he explained, IE has not stopped, but to work on diagnosis, evaluation, characterization, quantification, valorization and preparation for a safe intervention, realizing that “there are difficulties in mobilizing appropriate means for this work at island level, which has led the procurement off the island” to ensure the safety of people.

The IE technical team, which visited the section last June, found that the causes of complex mass movement may be one or a combination of several factors and there are more and more falls.
