THE project to improve the Las Pedrizas toll road has been given the green light of approval.
A project to improve the links of the Las Pedrizas toll road, approved by the central government and the infrastructure concessionaire, has now been given the definite green light.
Just over two years after the proposal was put on forward, the Ministry of Transport has just announced the approval of the public information file and final approval.
The infrastructure plans are now mainly in the hands of Mirova, an investment fund of French origin, to promote the improvements of the operation of the payment method by adding two new links with Casabermeja on one side, and the AP-7 on the other. They both have a completion period of 18 months and a global value of around €25 million.
One of the connections will be of importance to Malaga in the vicinity of pk 6 + 200 of the toll road and will allow a “substantial improvement” for the links to Casabermeja, Colmenar and Villanueva de la Concepción. The connection with the MA-3404 will be made through a roundabout (20 metres in internal diameter) at PK 0 + 900 of the same road.
From the roundabout, a 70-metre radius curve will be built (staying along the right of the Tío Lucas stream), followed by a straight parallel to the stream, and then another curve of 120 metres to the right (which ends crossing the stream). The branch continues straight ahead until a curve to the left that will connect with the current service road through a roundabout.
The other action will give the highway a direct connection to the MA-2 and allow “access to Malaga.” This will benefit the flow of traffic on the MA-2 and increases from two lanes to three. The final selected routes for this includes the construction of an overpass over the MA-20, a bridge over the El Cuarto stream and the structure of the overpass over the A-7.
