MOJACAR council has approved the Mayor’s proposal to apply for Andalucia regional government funding for upgrades to the Faz and Nava country lanes.
Council members agreed at the last plenary meeting to ask the Junta de Andalucia’s Agriculture, Livestock, Fishing and Sustainable Development regional ministry for a subsidy under the Plan Itinere for rural road improvements.

The Junta plan is designed to improve access infrastructure to agricultural holdings in order to improve potential productivity and competitiveness.
In the technical and financial report Mojacar local authority has prepared for the Junta the cost of the Camino de la Nava project would be €262,000 and €120,000 for the Camino del Faz.
In both cases, the quotes include measures like resurfacing, and works on drains, ditches, walls and road markers.
As it stands, the surface of the 1.3-kilometre long Camino del Faz is in a pretty deteriorated state with numerous potholes. It also tends to flood in heavy rains due to a lack of drainage. Depending on the agricultural cycle, it is during some periods of the year used by heavy vehicles.
The nearly two-kilometre long Camino de la Nava is also in a poor state of repair.
The Mojacar administration reported it is also planning ongoing improvements to other areas of the municipality under the Diputacion de Almeria 2020 Rural Roads Plan.
