A SECTION of the N-340 connecting Aguadulce with Almeria city will remain closed until May while works are carried out to repair the road from where a giant rock crashed down on New Year’s Eve.
The Sub-delegate of the Government in Almeria has reported that the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda’s Infrastructure Secretary General has now approved the €649,000 emergency project for a 120-metre stretch of the ‘El Cañarete’, as the road is more commonly known. The works are expected to take three months to complete.
El Cañarete was closed to traffic in both directions after a huge lump of rock came down in the area close to the Hotel Playa Sol in Enix in the early hours of the last day of the year, taking a huge chunk out of the road surface and causing other damage.
