WORKS to make the Vera to Garrucha road two lanes each way have got going again.
The Andalucia regional government’s Development and Infrastructure department restarted the second phase of the A-352 project today (Wednesday).
Just under €15 million euros are being invested in the works on the 4.3-kilometre stretch connecting with the coast road at Las Buganvillas roundabout, which have been paralysed since autumn last year.
The new completion date for turning the entire stretch of the road into a dual-carriageway is now next summer, said Junta de Andalucia Development, Infrastructure and Land Planning regional minister, Marifran Carazao, who joined Vera Mayor Jose Carmelo Jorge to see the works in action.
The aim is to improve safety and traffic flow on the road used by an average of some 14,500 vehicles a day, rising to as many as 24,000 in the peak holiday months.
