Progress expected for Fuerteventura’s motorway link
Fuerteventura could see further progress on its north to south motorway in 2019.
The Cabildo hopes that in 2019 the second third of the highway project that will join Corralejo with Morro Jable will be built, once funding for the new road plan has been confirmed.
Vice president and public works councillor of the Canary Government, Pablo Rodríguez, has acknowledged that the north-south axis of Fuerte-ventura is one of the priority actions in land communi-cations in the islands.
The second third of the highway will involve some 40 kilometres of route, of a total of 120 kilometres that separate the ports of Morro Jable and Corralejo.
That stretch is the one that will connect La Caldereta and Pozo Negro, passing through Puerto del Rosario and the airport and divided into two sections: Caldereta-Aero-puerto and Aeropuerto-Pozo Negro.
“The Cabildo de Fuerte-ventura will continue to monitor and demand that as soon as the new Canary-State highway agreement is signed, the Caldereta-Aeropuerto section will be contracted and, throughout 2018, the steps will be completed administrative in progress so that, imme-diately after, the airport-Pozo Negro stretch will enter into contract, “says the Cabildo.
