Romeo Rodríguez: “An intervention of this magnitude has never been done before”.

The machinery and the workers were the background for the conference in which the Ministry of Public Works, Romero Rodríguez Herrera, along with the Organizing Committee of the Central American and Caribbean Games, presented the progress of the Villa Centroamericana y del Caribe in Universidad de El Salvador.

“We practically started in January and in a few months we will be finished with this project, we have been working on it for two months, and we are already 50 percent complete,” said Rodriguez.

The minister explained that this is an enormous construction that is taking place in UES, where 12 buildings are being constructed, and 13 existing ones are being remodeled.

“We are intervening 395,000 square meters, which is more than 50 blocks of the university. We want to ensure that more than 4,500 athletes can have a decent space and that this is the best Village in Central America and the Caribbean,” explained the head of the MOP.

Rodriguez explained that the progress has been achieved thanks to the fact that more than 3,000 workers are working full time to carry out the different works and thus guarantee that the works will be completed in May.

“There are about 48 million dollars of public investment. The investment that we are developing in a few months is equivalent to the investment of nearly 50 years of the Universidad de El Salvador,” he said.

The minister clarified that they are also working on public spaces so that students can have facilities with air conditioning, with an uninterrupted supply of electricity and drinking water.

“We hope to be able to deliver this project in May, not only for the Central American and Caribbean Games, but also so the students can have completely remodeled facilities”, he said.
