A turbo roundabout will unclog the access road to Los Cristianos

Infographics of the new turbo roundabout at the entrance to the Los Cristianos nucleus.

It is estimated 35,000 vehicles use this area of Los Cristianos each day so a turbo roundabout will unblock the traffic that is suffered by the tourist centre Los Cristianos, especially in the direction from Las Americas to Los Cristianos.

The new roundabout, which has an investment of 1, 5 million euros, will not only improve the flow of traffic in the area but also will greatly boost road safety. The Strategic Framework of Insular Development (MEDI) 2016-2025, is in charge of carrying out the work, which is currently being processed. If the bureaucratic paperwork does not slow down the performance, the Turbo Rotunda Aronera could be a reality in 2020.

This would be the first turbo roundabout in the south of the island. It is foreseen that once tendered, the works can begin this year, in the summer and it is expected to take around eight months, which means that at the beginning of next year it should be ready.
