Tomorrow [Sunday 11] begins the asphalting of new sections on the two Island motorways the TF1 and TF5. This work is part of the investment – more than 23 million euros – that the Cabildo is carrying out to regenerate the state of deterioration of these road where average daily traffic is around 180,000 vehicles.
Work to lay 13 kilometres of the stretch connecting Santa Cruz (from Tres de Mayo tunnels) to La Laguna (Tenerife Norte airport) will start tomorrow. The work will take place at night from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Since it will affect all four lanes simultaneously, diversions will be in place. On Sunday 11 and Monday 12, from 21:30, the Tres de Mayo tunnel will be closed, and from 22:45, access by the pool. At 06:00 the following day, normal access to the motorway will be resumed. Drivers are asked that during the execution of the works, they take care and follow the information signage.
On Sunday, during the night asphalting work on sections in the south, between kilometres, 61 and 62 (Aeropuerto-Chafiras) will begin and speed will be reduced to 80 kilometres per hour, as happened last week in the section of Guaza to Parque de la Reina. The forecast is this section of work should be finished by Thursday.
The Cabildo has invested 3.7 million euros in this project to link the airport with Fañabé and it is expected to be completed in early August.
Carlos Alonso reiterates his apologies for the inconvenience suffered by drivers but these are unavoidable due to the scale and difficulty of the work.
