MORE than 600 accident black spots have been identified on Spanish roads by the DGT General Traffic Department.
Andalucia is the autonomous community with the most black spots (66), followed by Madrid (43) and Galicia (22).
But the most dangerous stretch of road in Spain this year, according to the report, is located on the Turia motorway, Valencia’s CV-35 road. On one stretch at kilometre 3.2, a total of 21 injury accidents were registered with another 32 accidents occurring along the rest of the road. The second most dangerous road is the TF-65 in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which registered 21 accidents at Kilometre eight.
The third deadliest black spot was found in Madrid, specifically the road A-2, kilometre 15, with 19 accidents.
The number of accidents has dropped by 11,000 since 2007, while the number of black spots has gone from 802 to 600 currently, according to the DGT data. Experts accredit this reduction to the government’s campaigns to eradicate black spots.
In 2015, the budget allocated to road improvement and maintenance will amount to €935 million.
