The island vice-president and counselor for Roads, Enrique Arriaga (Citizens), explains that “this is an urgent action that It will allow the installation of new triple torsion meshes to restore safety on this island road. The current retention system of the slope is compromised due to the frequent landslides that occur in the area, sometimes with large rocks.
The Technical Service of Highways and Landscape of the Tenerife Council will proceed with this action to clean and repair the existing meshes, «for which it is necessary to carry out a removal of all the detached material and a subsequent repair of the affected elements, both the networks of rings such as the heat sinks and the cables of these meshes, among other security elements ”.
The insular director of Roads, Tomás Félix García (Cs), details that «There will be occasional cuts to be able to work safely and at times when it is considered that there is some risk of detachment “. The works have an approximate execution period of three months and a budget of 29,399 euros. Until next September 30, vehicle traffic is prohibited between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., a period in which access must be made through Titsa line 369, which offers 22 routes every day, in both senses.
