The technical reports that the Council of Tenerife they certify the impossibility of implementing any of the alternatives proposed by the Los Realejos council for the reopening of the incorporation that existed from the Camino del Patronato to the TF-5.
A note from the Cabildo indicates that the two options violate current traffic regulations and pose a serious danger to traffic and road safety.
The Minister of Roads, Enrique Arriaga, details that 69 accidents have been registered in the area according to the Civil Guard database since 2016 and adds that the alternatives proposed by the Los Realejos city council are not viable either.
The insular director of Highways, Tomás Félix García, explains that the technical reports made by the area clearly detail the connections that must be made through an acceleration lane with established minimum measures and conditions that in neither of the two royal alternatives can be carry out, in addition to skipping one of them the horizontal marking and a continuous line.
According to the Cabildo, the rehabilitation that has been carried out on the TF-5 has not only improved the state of the road surface of a large part of the trunk of the road and many of its links, but has also allowed the road to be adapted to the regulations existing.
The Realejos Management Plan itself includes the elimination of the access from the Camino del Patronato to the TF-5 and contemplates the alternative solution to it, for which the Cabildo urges the City Council to start it up as soon as possible.
