Vera to get new roundabout

A new roundabout is to be built at a dangerous “black spot” outside Vera.

The new traffic measure will replace the current offset cross roads which lead out of town towards Cuevas del Almanzora, just past the Lidl’s supermarket. The cross roads is considered to be one of the most accident prone spots on the provincial road network.

The project has been announced by Vera council, who have signed a collaboration agreement with the county council allowing the road modification to go ahead. A technical team will now be assembled to assess the situation and draw up a plan.

Mayor Felix says that although no timeline is ready, he will personally pressure the team to work as quickly as possible and says that he expects the works to be completed by next summer.

The current cross roads make an intersection with the Vera bypass which during the height of the tourism season sees a high level of traffic between the coast and the main motorway, as well as the Antas industrial estate.
