The president of the Cabildo de Tenerife, Pedro Martín, has asked the CC and PP opposition to support the construction of the motor circuit, to overcome “revanchist strategies” and not to block this infrastructure any more.
The plenary session of the Cabildo will address on May 27 the proposal to dedicate 5.1 million euros to the completion of the motor circuit in Granadilla de Abona, a sports infrastructure that, according to Pedro Martín in a statement, “has been sued in a history on the island both for the world of sports and for the socioeconomic development of the southern area of Tenerife”.
“The opposition has the opportunity to transcend political positions based on revenge” and support a project that “will increase tourism and sports attractions for people who live on the island and also for those who visit us,” according to Martín.
The work would be carried out simultaneously in three execution phases: land clearing, embankment reinforcement to avoid runoff that could affect the track and the building and paddock.
If this investment is not approved, “a project that has been working on for more than thirty years would be abandoned,” he said, for which he asked the Canarian Coalition to vote “thinking about the common good” and not “taking into account political strategies.” ”.
“Works such as the Motor Circuit cannot be in the middle of partisan disputes, because in the end the one who will lose out will be the citizens,” the statement concludes.
