New Highway to Open on Thursday

With any luck my weekly drive to La Romana will be much quicker, safer and more comfortable. It was announced today that the inaguaration will take place tomorrow and the road will open to the public on Thursday...not certain if it is a partial or complete opening. I will know on the weekend when i drive down.

opening resheduled again, they are at this time of the eve still working, it will from PC to St Dgo not be complete very soon.

to La Romana it will save minimum half of the actual travel time, but it comes with a prize on that private road of course, rumors say that it will be a Toll Fee of 400 Pesos one way, to be cashed both ways, that would be a 20 bucks for a PC-La Romana Roundtrip, but we will see the final fees once they get their act together, and I expect bthat there will be monthly/3-monthly and yearly Fees/Stickers possible to be purchased for the residents.

the good thing, once the Tourist Busses and such traffick switches to use the new Hioghway, the old road will be qyuiet empty and a good and relaxed ride compared to the full traffick of todays, if it is finally a 20 bucks for a safe of 30 minutes of traveltime one way I know somebody who sticks to the ole route taking a coffee or a greenie on the way but with less than half of todays traffick on the ole route.

we will find it out very soon

Vocabulary building 101?

never heard of 'greenie" but looked this up:

Greenie (Australian bird), an Australian lorikeet

Greenie (Scottish bird), the European Greenfinch

Greenie (drug), a psychostimulant drug of the phenethylamine class

Greenie (occupation), one who broadly supports the goals of the environmental movement

Greenie (occupation), a member of the Royal Australian Navy, who is an Electronics Technician

So are you taking birds along or using drugs? ;-)
