THE Almeria government has announced investments adding up to €10.5 million in rural roads across the province.
Diputacion de Almeria president Javier A. Garcia unveiled details of the administration’s 2020-2021 rural road plan at a presentation in in El Ejido, one of the most important municipalities in the province for the agricultural sector.
Garcia underlined what he said was the Diputacion’s support for agriculture and farmers, pointing to what adds up to €27.4 million the administration has allocated to rural road plans running from 2016 to 2021.
The Diputacion president described the new plan as “ambitious”, and said there were projected investments in all of Almeria’s 103 municipalities.
El Ejido Mayor Francisco Gongora credited the provincial government for his municipality having been able to carry out works on some 20 rural lanes which he maintained are “vital” due to the high levels of traffic which use them and which provide access to farms and cooperatives.
“These plans have been a lifeline for us”, Gongora said, adding, “this help is fundamental for improving not only our roads but also for supporting our most important economic sector.”
