If you’ve been to the Vadillo trading estate in Motril you will have seen that the roadworks have begun and diversions put in place.
The budget, as explained in a previous article, is some 1.5m euros, half of which comes from EU funds (FEDER) and via the levy paid through water bills to the utilities company, Aguas y Servicios.
Traffic coming in from the N-340 roundabout is diverted at the gasolinera roundabout to flow along the back road (which goes past the bus station). Traffic accessing from Kilometro Uno, at the other end, is free to do so in order to reach the businesses on the trading estate. However, if you wish reach the N-340 via El Vadillo then you take the back road past the bus station. Clear as mud, right? Good!
Apart from the new mains water & sewage systems, plus the separate rain drains system, they are also going to change the street lighting and add pedestrian paths and even a cycle lane.
The work between Kilometro Uno and the new, gasolinera roundabout is being done in two stages; first on one lane and then the other so that there is always a lane available for through traffic.
The Mayor, Flor Almón, explained that work will soon begin on the Vadillo 2, which is the back area, to eliminate the bad flooding that this zone almost always suffers.
