More Tunnel Work

Work will affect traffic on the A-7 going through the Capistrano and Torrox tunnels starting today.

NRJ Capistrano Tunnel A-7The relevant ministry that anounced this (The Mitma) said this work on the two tunnels should be concluded by early Friday morning.

To be  more  precise, work began last night at 22.00h and will conclude at 06.00h, Friday morning.

Lanes will be  closed  down alternatively each day, depending on how the working with the tunnels progresses.

The  closures will be between kilometre points, 929.6 & 931.4 (Capistrano) and between kilometre points 935.3 & 937.4 (Torrox).

This means, if you’re heading for  the airport (as I will be by the time you read this) leave with time  to spare  just to be on the safe side because two lanes of traffic will be funnelled down to one until you are through the tunnels.

Editorial comment: the  last time we passed on this information from the Ministry of Public Works, there was no sign of the roadworks… This could be because the work is being carried out only at night in order to cause the  least disruptions: i.e.,between 22.00h and 06.00h the next morning.
