The Ministry of Development will build a roundabout to improve security between Los Urrutias and El Carmolí, in an area with 2,500 vehicles per day
The Ministry of Development and Infrastructures will improve road safety in the Cartagena towns of El Carmolí and Los Urrutias with the construction of a new roundabout at the intersection between the old national road, which runs from the AP-7 motorway to Los Alcázares. This road is the main access to these nuclei. In addition, on the regional highway that connects El Albujón with the A-30 highway, the pavement and pavement will be renewed and drainage will improve. It will also carry out the replacement of the signage and the painting of the railing in the work of passage that crosses the Canal del Trasvase. In total, it will invest 434,000 euros.
The action in the surroundings of the Mar Menor is part of the programming of road safety improvements of the regional road network and will benefit the more than 2,500 vehicles that travel on this regional road every day. The counselor, José Ramón Díez de Revenga, reported yesterday that the work is already under tender, which has a budget of 254,000 euros and that it will have a four-month execution period.
“It is a work in high demand by the City of Cartagena and that shows the firm commitment of the regional government with this region and with the road safety of all the inhabitants of the Region of Murcia,” said the counselor. And he added that the roundabout will eliminate the T-intersection of the RM-F54 highway and will reduce the high speed currently reached by vehicles on the road.
In El Albujón, the Community will invest 180,000 euros. The mayor of Cartagena, Noelia Arroyo, recalled that it is an old demand of the neighbors, since “it was even approved in a plenary session of the 2015 neighborhood council.” And he added: “The arrangement of this road will mean a before and after.”
