Green Light for New PTS Road Link

Andalusia's Regional Government has approved the construction of a new road link connecting the Granada Health Science Technological Park (PTS) to the Ronda Sur bypass (A-395) and the A-44 between Sierra Nevada and Jaén. Work on the 611,000-euro project is expected to start in February 2018 and will take four months.

According to Felipe López, the Regional Minister of Development and Housing, the new road will help improve safety and mobility in an area with very heavy traffic, and ease the traffic jams that currently cause delays there. Mr López also announced a further 2.4 million-euro investment to improve links between the municipality of Armilla, the PTS and the Nevada shopping centre via a new walking and cycling route.

The new road will provide a direct link between the Ronda Sur bypass service road at the Ogíjares roundabout and the A-395 heading towards Jaén. The new stretch of road will be 472 metres long, consisting of a 3.5 metre-wide carriageway and a 2.5-metre hard shoulder. The speed limit will be 60 kilometres per hour.

The construction of this new link to the PTS is part of a broader road safety project encompassing various other improvements to the service road. These include reinforcing the road surface, improving signage, and installing new barriers and drainage. The same improvements will also be made to the branch of the A-395 that connects to the A-44.
