In a statement, the area’s insular councilor, Enrique Arriaga, said that “despite the fact that the final layer of tread is still missing in these 15 kilometers, the improvement in road safety and driving comfort for road users is evident”.
For its part, Next week’s work will begin this Sunday, September 12, and will last until Thursday, September 16, always at night to minimize inconvenience to drivers.
During these days, the diversion of vehicles that circulate south will be enabled through the different links of the affected sections. In both cases, the circulation alternatives will be appropriately marked.
