Uruguay Holy Week Public Holidays Update

Source: La Nueva Provincia
Posted: Saturday, March 10, 2007

Expect massive traffic problems during Holy Week if traveling by land between Argentina and Uruguay, as it appears that the 3 bridges between Argentina and Uruguay (Gualeguaychú, Colón and Concordia) will be closed from April 1 to April 8, 2007.

This was announced, as a means, by the border Argentinian province, to pressure the Uruguayian government to abandon its plan of diverting water from the Río Uruguay as part of the construction of a new paper pulp factory.
