Likewise, the legislator stressed that “This is a work that was promised many times to the residents of Rivadavia, and today we can say that it is a reality. In a few weeks we will have network gas in America, and this not only implies a reduction in costs and an improvement in service, but also the possibility for our companies to grow and new ventures to settle in the district”.
Finally, Martínez highlighted that “14 trucks with CNG tanks are going to stop circulating on the route, with all the risk that this implies”, although “there will still be many residents who will not be able to connect to the network because in all these years they have not works were carried out in the city. We need everyone’s commitment to move forward with that as well.”
In July of last year, when the project was awarded, Massa valued “Juanci Martínez’s obstinacy in fighting for this work,” adding that “the dedication and work put into the gas pipeline project marks the enormous commitment that has with its neighbors, and with the growth and development of America”.
The progress of the American Gas Pipeline
The Gasoducto de Alimentación a América registers a construction progress of 90%, according to authorities from ENARGAS and Camuzzi. The new pipeline, which will connect the neighboring town of Trenque Lauquen with America, will reduce logistics costs in the supply of gas for the company and for users, will enable access to supply for more residents, and will free supply capacity for the neighboring towns of Carlos Tejedor, González Moreno, Berutti and Urdampilleta.
The work, which was carried out along 72 kilometers, will allow for greater operational safety and will improve road safety, since it will represent a decrease in the circulation of bottled gas trucks on the routes of northwest Buenos Aires.
In addition, the America Food Pipeline will promote growth and development, generating the conditions for the settlement of industries and the establishment of neighbors in the Rivadavia district.
