South roads need action
Business leaders in the south of Tenerife are once again calling for greater investment in the road network.
THE Circle of Entrepreneurs and Professionals of the South says the thousands of people who use the local roads don’t deserve “unfair treatment”.
The organisation is calling on the Canary Government to make Tenerife, especially the tourist south, a priority and allocate more money to get road projects finished and routes improved.
CEST also wants the Government to publish details of the daily average intensity of vehicle traffic, as well as the accident rate on the islands’ roads and the time of travel in short distances (10-20 kilo-metres) .
Its president Roberto Ucelay says a full mobility study should also be carried out.
The group contends that further delays in road projects will harm the island’s economy.
Priorities should include the Chafiras-Oroteanda link, the third lane of the TF-1 between San Isidro and Armeñime, the completion of the island ring and the Los Cristianos link.
Lighting and landscaping also needs attention, says CEST.
