THE Diputacion provincial council’s Winter Roads Plan is prepared to swing into action as soon as required.
The Plan de Vialidad Invernal sets out specific procedures to ensure that roads in the 103 Almeria municipalities most likely to be affected by bad weather, particularly snow and ice, remain safe and passable.
“As always at this time of the year, when low temperatures and adverse weather conditions are likely, we are ready to cope with anything and to guarantee maximum safety on the province’s 1,200 kilometres of roads,” said the Diputacion’s vice-president Angel Escobar, who also heads its Public Works department.
“We also have the capacity to extend the Plan with extra equipment and operatives if the situation requires it,” he added.
Detailing the plan and the amount of equipment available, Escobar thanked the Diputacion’s Roads personnel who, throughout the year were ready to deal with any incident, helping local populations and their municipalities.
