The PP candidates of Almería Carmen Crespo, Pablo Venzal and Maribel Sánchez have visited the Almanzora region, where they have highlighted the important boost that the Government of Change has given to this area of the province in just three and a half years. According to Crespo, this is a region abandoned by the socialist governments in the Junta, which legislature after legislature promised infrastructures such as the Almanzora motorway that never arrived. Now, with Juanma Moreno, the works are underway with an investment of almost 50 million euros in the last two sections and next year it will be a reality.
“Juanma Moreno made a commitment to the Almanzora and has kept his word in just three and a half years after 30 years of lies and false promises by the Socialist Party,” he said.
The number 1 of the PP in Almeria, who was accompanied by mayors and councillors from the area, as well as by the secretary of Urbanism and Planning of the PP, Eloisa Cabrera, and the secretary of Agriculture, Aránzazu Martín, pointed out that this dual carriageway will be the definitive take-off point for 28 towns and more than 70,000 Almerians and recalled that the projects for the connection with the A-92 through Baza are also underway.
“The PSOE is now criticising the fact that the works on the dual carriageway are suffering delays, which is a joke to the people of Almeria, who have seen how, under the Socialist Party, this work has not progressed and also when all Andalusians have had to pay 16 million in compensation for the inability and failure of the Socialists to fulfil their obligations”, she stressed.
Carmen Crespo also recalled that the Government of Juanma Moreno has already invested 100 million euros in almost 900 kilometres of roads in the province, investing in roads such as the widening of the Vera-Garrucha road, inaugurated in 2020, the Berja bypass and the Pampanico road, all of which were ignored by the PSOE and implemented by the Government of Juanma Moreno.
In addition to communications infrastructure, the number 1 of the PP in Almeria has also referred to the commitment of the PP Government to ensure water in the Almanzora and recalled that while the Government of Juanma Moreno has invested 173 million in water works in the province, the Government of Spain has not yet started even one of the many works that fall within its competence such as the repair and expansion of the desalination plant of Bajo Almanzora or Carboneras.
“While the Government of Juanma Moreno is working on investments and has 15 WWTP projects underway in this region, the hydraulic policy of the Spanish Government is hindering the future of Almeria and the cuts in the Tajo-Segura water transfer are stifling agriculture in the Levante region”, she stressed.
Finally, Carmen Crespo advocated actions to improve the efficiency of irrigation and reduce energy costs. She also called for actions such as the Alcóntar regulation reservoir to make the Negratín-Almanzora water transfer more efficient and thus reduce the electricity bill for irrigators.
For his part, the PP candidate Pablo Venzal has highlighted the important boost that has been given to the Almanzora region in this legislature and has asked the residents of this area of Almeria to vote for Juanma Moreno on 19-J so that “Almeria continues to advance and taxes continue to be lowered”.
“On 19-J there are only two ways forward, either to continue moving forward with a calm, moderate and effective government with a broad social majority, or a hodgepodge of left-wing parties that are a return to the most stale past. In these three and a half years we have shown that Almería and Andalusia are moving forward with the model of Juanma Moreno and we cannot go backwards with the model of Pedro Sánchez that Juan Espadas represents”, he pointed out.
Finally, Venzal reminded that the only poll that counts is the one that comes out of the ballot boxes on 19-J and that we must turn out to vote en masse next Sunday. “Let us not throw overboard the path of these three and a half years, let us not be confident because every vote counts and a high turnout strengthens democracy, institutions and will allow us to achieve a broad majority to govern alone, without our hands tied, to move faster and better”.
