Socialist MP Sonia Ferrer highlighted the 10 million euros earmarked for tunnels and roundabouts from Aguadulce to Los Gallardos and Huércal-Overa.

The PSOE national deputy in Almería, Sonia Ferrer Tesoro, underlined the “firm commitment” of the Spanish government to improve, renovate and modernize the roads of the province and underlined the value and example of the last three tenders, which total around 10 million euros, as reported by Ideal.es

The action, told the socialist from Almeria, will take place in Los Gallardos, with the construction of three roundabouts on the N-340A; in Huércal-Overa, where another roundabout is also planned on the N-340A that crosses this municipality and, finally, in the municipality of Almería with works to improve several tunnels on the AL-14, N- 340 and A-7.

Ferrer pointed out that the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (Mitma) has already invested 28 million euros in Almería since 2018, through the national road network, a figure which, in his opinion, “highlights the objective of the executive of Pedro Sánchez to renovate the roads of the province and improve the intermunicipal structuring”. These roads that will be subject to intervention are “very busy”, she said, in a province where the tourism sector is “vital” and needs “good communications”, a problem to which the PSOE “responds,” she said.

The socialist deputy stressed that with regard to the intervention to be carried out in Los Gallardos, it is a work “requested for years by the society of Almeria”. The public information file for the construction of the three roundabouts in this municipality was approved on April 29 and has a budget of 2.2 million euros.

As for the Huércal-Overa roundabout – which has a budget of more than €503,000 – he specified that it will be located at the intersection between the N-340A and the Úrcal-El Saltador road.

The third intervention, on the tunnels, will relate, on the one hand, to the tunnel of Aguadulce on the A-7 and, on the other hand, to those of Bayyana Norte – on the AL-14, Bayyana Sur, La Parra and La Garrofa – on the N-340A and its objective is to adapt these facilities to the new regulations on safety in state road tunnels.

The work on the A-7 motorway gallery, with a budget of €6.4 million, will include an auxiliary gallery on either side to reinforce the evacuation systems, a drainage system for toxic substances and a network of fire hydrants.
