The Cabildo Highway area faces the last weeks of the works to rehabilitate the Autopista del Sur (TF-1) between Arico and Adeje. This week’s work will culminate on Thursday morning and is focused “on improving transfers”, which are the median areas enabled to make temporary traffic diversions for operational and safety reasons.
As has happened throughout the process, the works, carried out by the company Sacyr, will be carried out between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., to minimize inconvenience to road users, based on the lower influx of traffic . Although they will affect different points of the motorway, in no case will both lanes be cut, so circulation will be guaranteed without the need for detours.
The vice-president of the Cabildo de Tenerife and island councilor for Roads, Enrique Arriaga, explains that “the work will be completed in a few weeks”, taking into account that the only thing left to do is provide the motorway with horizontal signage and beacons, as well as finish instructions made by the construction management.
During this night, improvements will be made at kilometer 56.8, in Granadilla de Abona, as well as in the area of the road located between kilometers 58.2 and 60.6, in San Miguel de Abona. On Tuesday, the rehabilitation will continue in this last section and will also move to the surroundings of kilometer point 76.5. Thus, starting at 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday, it will continue between kilometers 75.5 and 76.9, already in the municipality of Adeje.
This time the work will not entail total closures of the highway or its links, but rather work will be carried out on only one of the lanes, allowing circulation on the other.
These works are part of the resurfacing plan for the Autopista del Sur between kilometer points 43,700 and 48,690, from Arico to Adeje, which has been carried out since last April 2021. In total, the works, carried out by Sacyr , comprise about 40 kilometers through which more than 90,000 vehicles circulate daily. The Cabildo faces this action with an investment that was awarded for an amount of 15.4 million euros.
