Fruit producers in Petrolina, in the Sertão de Pernambuco, complain about the lack of infrastructure on the PE-633, known as the C3 road. The road is full of holes and makes it difficult to transport goods and passengers, in addition to causing damage to fruit buyers.
The runway was built ten years ago and, according to residents, only works are done to fill a hole. The C3 road gives access to the N6, N7 and also to the Maria Tereza project, important Irrigation Centers in the region. Fruit buyer Fábio Cruz suffers from these problems. “We lose time, break a car, and this has been going on for many years. The people who suffer from it ”.

"It is contempt. There is no one here to do anything, nor does one want to inspect, "laments the rural producer.
Locals say they don't know who to turn to. Drivers demand a position from the authorities. “We hope that they will at least ease the situation. Politicians could look a little more at the countryside, ”says Fábio.
In a note, the city of Petrolina reported that the highways are PE-633, 636 and 638 and that it is therefore the responsibility of the state government to recap the roads. The Highways Department (DER), said that these highways were built by Codevasf, and that it is the company's responsibility to carry out the necessary requalification actions.
Codevasf's superintendence declared that the roads are in the process of being transferred to the government of Pernambuco, since they are part of the state road network. Details on the progress of the process and when it should be finalized have not been released by the company.
