VERA council has carried out a series of works at one of the town’s traffic hubs which are designed to improve safety and accessibility.
The local authority has invested just over €48,000 in the area close to the Reyes Catolicos school, and where there is access to the El Palmeral fairground and sports grounds.
Measures have included creating a roundabout, resurfacing roads, updating pavements on both sides and creating pavements where they were lacking, and new street signs.

“The main problem of this intersection is that at the same crossroads there were four roads with scarce visibility to be able to cross correctly, causing a high level of danger for both vehicles and pedestrians, with an intense volume of traffic which as a result was very indecisive and dangerous, and on top of this there was the poor state of the surface due to opening up a number of trenches for works on different networks”, pointed out Vera Infrastructure councillor Alfonso Garcia.”
