The project has been awarded for almost 2.5 million euros and is financed by the Consistory and the Provincial Council of Almería.

The Huércal-Overa Town Council has awarded the works of the direct access road to the Hospital La Inmaculada to the company Nila for an amount of almost 2.5 million euros. With this tender, the so-called “urbanisation of access to La Inmaculada Hospital” project becomes a reality, for which the Consistory and the Provincial Council of Almeria have provided funding. This new road will connect Avenida La Molineta with Avenida Doctora Ana Parra, giving direct access to the emergency rooms of La Inmaculada Hospital.

The traffic situation in Avda. Felipe VI, where the sports infrastructures coincide (pavilion and indoor swimming pool), with one of the accesses to the fairgrounds through which the San José de Calasanz School is accessed, as well as being the access road to the Hospital up to Avda. Doctora Ana Parra and the connection of the A-7 exit with the N-340 towards the districts means that there are numerous traffic jams in this area on a daily basis, so in order to make the traffic flow more fluid, the government team has been working on this project for several years now, with which it is planned to build this road which, as well as providing direct access to the Hospital de la Inmaculada, improving the circulation of ambulances to its emergency rooms, will be a structuring axis for the future urban development of Huércal-Overa to the north.

The Mayor, Domingo Fernández, explained that once the construction project has been awarded the only thing left to do is to wait for the start of the works, which is expected to begin in July, “thus materialising the alternative fast access road to the Hospital, fulfilling a public demand. This project has been a priority for our team since 2016, when it was agreed in plenary session to begin the process of obtaining the corresponding land for the construction of the direct access road to the La Inmaculada Regional Hospital, with the Government Team carrying out all the necessary procedures to achieve this objective. We have the support of the Provincial Council, as this is an important project not only for Huércal-overa but also for the regions of Levante, Almanzora and Norte which are served by the Hospital Comarcal La Inmaculada in the municipality, which serves a total of 34 municipalities with a population of over 180,000 inhabitants”.

“The new access to the Hospital improves the infrastructure of Huércal-Overa, improving road safety for the residents of the municipality and all users of the Hospital, reducing the time that in some cases can be vital for patients,” said the mayor of Huércal-Overa.

The vice-president of the Provincial Council and deputy for Development, Ángel Escobar, explained that “this project will improve the safety and comfort of thousands of users who come to the hospital every day. This work responds to a historical demand of the locality that will soon become a reality. The project is not only important for Huércal-Overa but for the whole region and the province because it will shorten distances and speed up access to the reference hospital. It is an example of institutional collaboration that equalises opportunities between Almeria residents and improves public services for citizens”.

The project shows that the road will have two lanes in each direction, a central median and roundabouts at the intersections with Avda. La Molineta and Camino de Los Cocones. The works are scheduled to take twelve months to complete.
