The Ministry of Development has completed the repair works of the sinking of the road of the Abanilla road, which connects Baños de Fortuna with Venta Collares, and which was cut off to traffic due to the heavy rains produced by the Dana last month of September.
The General Director of Roads, José Antonio Fernández Lladó, today supervised these works in which the Community has invested 191,452 euros to recover a road that supports an annual traffic of about 514,000 vehicles, of which 86,870 are trucks.
Fernández Lladó said that "returning this road to its previous state has been one of our priorities because the alternative diversion generated significant discomfort for users by giving access, in addition to the localities, to fairly visited facilities."
The works have consisted of demolishing and lifting the damaged pavement, excavating the embankment at an adequate depth and filling it with pedraplén to avoid subsequent subsidence and at the same time serving as draining material, in addition to building a downpipe, increasing the drainage capacity of the work drainage, and replace the curbs and the safety barrier.
This work is part of the emergency repair work carried out by the Community in 16 roads of the region's road network that suffered heavy damage, and in which a total of 1.3 million euros has been invested.
