Cabildo and Santa Cruz city council study raft of road improvements
Tenerife Cabildo and Santa Cruz city council have been reviewing the different actions on roads planned for 2018.
Those present included Cabildo president, Carlos Alonso and Mayor José Manuel Bermúdez.
Both corporations reviewed the state of the projects, “some of which are progressing at a good pace,” said Sr. Alonso.
Among them, work on the road of Los Campitos (TF-111) will begin in the coming months, with the contract already awarded. The Cabildo will invest more than two million euros to improve the asphalt, pedestrian crossings and bus stops. Shortly, the improvement of the San Francisco de Paula road in Llano del Moro (TF-265) will also be adjudicated and the TF-263 (Sobradillo), TF-28 (old road) and the TF are in tender (phase four, south penetration route).
Sr. Bermúdez said the agreement strengthens the traditional cooperation between the Island Corporation and the City Council for the execution of works demanded by the citizens.
“The best way to work is from the consensus, with the firm purpose of responding to the needs of residents, an objective that we fully share both institutions and in which we will continue working in the future,” he said.
Sr. Bermúdez highlighted the execution of the resurfacing of the entry route of Santa Cruz, a fundamental artery in the accesses and exits of the capital, which required an integral improvement.
The meeting also ad-dressed the projects that are currently in the drafting stage, such as the pedestrian and bicycle lanes on the TF-11 San Andrés motorway that leads to Las Teresitas beach. In this way, the Cabildo also assesses improving road safety in the short term.
Also pending is the drawing up of projects to prepare the TF-272 (ascent to Sobradillo), TF-256 (ascent to Tablero)) and TF-180 (Santa Cruz-La Laguna). In relation to the Tíncer roundabout, the Cabildo is supervising the project that will be financed by the Island Corporation.
There were also talks about the improvement work of the Las Mesas Park, which is in the administrative phase and the possibility of building a lookout in Casas de la Cumbre (Anaga).
The Cabildo also undertook to study the lighting arrange-ment between the TF-1 and the TF-28.
