Plans to improve ‘most dangerous road’

THE Llucmajor to Campos road has been dubbed the most dangerous in Mallorca, but the Territory and Infrastructures Department has promised work will start on it in 2016.
In the past 10 years, 16 people have died on the road and many others have been seriously injured.
The Traffic Department explains that the 9.5 kilometres of the MA-19 between the two points carry a great number of vehicles, especially in the summer, and many drivers don’t slow down, having just travelled 20 kilometres on the toll motorway. In most cases, excessive speed has been the cause of the accidents.
Another problem on the same road is that there are 7.7 kilometres between the exits for es Coll d’en Rabassa and Cala Brava, where there is no central safety barrier. This has led to many fatal accidents when vehicles have driven into oncoming traffic.
The Councillor for Territory and Infrastructures, Mercedes Garrido, has said that fixing these problems is a priority and that engineers are already working on how to make changes which will improve safety.
