Road woes on Fuerteventura
Fuerteventura is echoing the calls of other islands in the Canaries for the urgent unblocking of vital road projects.
The Cabildo says the delays have led to increased congestion on the main roads which is deemed “totally unacceptable”.
Island leaders are particularly concerned about the planned north-south axis which would link al important locations, including the capital of Puerto del Rosario, the airport of Matorral, the port and nucleus of Gran Tarajal and the important tourist zones of Corralejo El Castillo and Morro Jable. It would be a total of 117 kilometres.
Financing is also being pressed for to start at least six other major road projects.
