Cabildo announces vital resurfacing work on the TF-5
Tenerife Cabildo is investing 7.4 million euros in the second phase of the asphalting of the TF-5 in the north of the island.
Work is to start on the night of November 27th and will cover both directions during the next ten months.
It is being undertaken by Draviten UTE, formed by the companies Dragados, Seña-lizaciones Villar and Ten As-falto.
Specifically, the planned improvements will be made between La Laguna and Los Realejos (kilometres 13 to 39) with an investment of 7,476,105 euros.
The action is part of a global investment of more than 23 million euros that the Cabildo is carrying out on the two motorways of the island (TF-1 and TF-5).
“This will regenerate their current state and at the same time, facilitate the mobility of citizens and visitors who travel daily,” said a Cabildo spokes-man.
Details of the major project were revealed by the president of the Cabildo, Carlos Alonso, in an act attended by the insular directors of development and roads, Miguel Becerra and Ofelia Manjón, respectively, and the representatives of the municipalities of the north.
Sr. Alonso explained that “it is about completing the rehabilitation works of the road between La Laguna and Los Realejos which are necessary because the surface is deteriorated.”
“We are making an im-portant investment effort, with 23 million euros on the two motorways, whose first two phases began in the spring and are now concluded. The work of the second phase of the TF-1 is already underway and will now begin in the north,” he said.
The president recalled that “since we began our mandate, we have invested 125 million euros to improve the insular roads and we will continue because that work is a priority for us.”
The asphalt works will be carried out at night, from 10pm to 6am, from Thursday to Sunday, except on the eve of holidays, and at wee-kends in order to generate as little inconvenience as possible.
Motorists will be informed in detail of the necessary deviations and alternative routes (TF-152, TF-235, TF-174, TF-217, TF-320) during night work.
