CFK, Macri to inaugurate Illia highway expansion
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner will attend the inauguration of Illia highway expansion together with Buenos Aires City Mayor Mauricio Macri, amid a recent rapprochement and improvement of their political and institutional relation.
The President and the City Mayor will share the inauguration ceremony of the three-kilometers expansion, designed to connect 9 de Julio and General Paz avenues lowering commute times for the over 30,000 vehicles that take this artery to leave the capital on a daily basis.
According to City authorities, the new infrastructure will not only speed transit, but also “contribute to improve traffic safety by decreasing the amount of vehicles in Costanera, Figueroa Alcorta and Sarmiento avenues”.
The highway will be open for traffic this afternoon around 7 p.m.
