Further delay for insular ring road
Work on completing Tenerife south’s insular ring road will be suspended until at least September pending budget discussions.
The Canary Government has still to approve the financial allocation for the project which the island considers absolutely vital to its future.
At least six million euros is needed but this will increase to around 20 million euros to finish off from Adeje to Guia de Isora. One of the main challenges and expenses is a viaduct which would have to be built on the mainland and then installed on site.
Construction of the section between Erques and Chio could begin in October and take about a year and eight months to finish.
The update was given during a meeting with business representatives to discuss how to revitalise the south from a quality and competitiveness point of view.
