Last April, Eloísa Cabrera, the Andalusian Regional Government’s Delegate for Development, presented the works for the new roundabout which the Andalusian Regional Government will build to replace the existing intersection on the A-349 road next to the junction with the A-334 in the aforementioned municipality, which is known for its high level of danger.
Work is already underway at a point where numerous traffic accidents have occurred over the years.
The works include the transformation of the existing intersection into a conventional roundabout, with an outer diameter of 45 metres, with a 9.50 metre wide ring road, the centre of which coincides with that of the existing split-type roundabout.
The works have a tender budget of 262,664.99 euros and a completion period of 3 months. They include the installation of lighting on the central island of the roundabout and along the two branches that make up the A-349. To this end, the strip on the northern edge of the stretch of road between the roundabout and the road, in the direction of the town of Olula del Río, will be widened so that there is sufficient space to house the conduits, foundations for the lighting points and manholes for the planned lighting. In the rest of the sections, this widening of the berm is not envisaged as there is currently sufficient space.
