The APP GICA SA Concessionaire provided a statement to the public reflecting the disagreement with some citizens who carried out vandalism against a road infrastructure, which is of great importance for all those who travel there.
On November 20, 2023, around 12:18 p.m., damage to one of the road safety elements available on the corridor in charge of this Concessionaire was evident. This act of vandalism was carried out by two people who were traveling through the Boquerón sector (Ibagué) in the vicinity of K10+580 of Functional Unit 1, which belongs to the Second Calzada Ibagué – Cajamarca. In the video you can see how Those involved resort to acts of intolerance to tear down the SOS Post that is part of the Intelligent Transportation System – ITS, which allows connectivity to users with the Observation Control Center – CCO, to attend to the requirements that may occasionally arise during its transportation along the roads managed by this Society.
When road infrastructure is compromised, the direct consequences on road safety are significant, these acts put drivers and pedestrians at risk who face new challenges when road infrastructure is affected.
Each irresponsible act affects not only the roads, but also the lives of all road actors who travel this important road corridor in the country.
