The Mayor of San Bartolomé has spoken of plans to relieve congestion at Playa Honda by putting a stretch of the main LZ2 road underground.

70,000 vehicles use the main road through Playa Honda daily, most of which are passing through. Alexis Tejera said that “we support the idea of putting the main road underground, getting a technical report and, if it’s viable, seeking funds.”

The plan involves an underground stretch of the LZ2 road for traffic that is not destined for Playa Honda. Meanwhile, an urban street would be built above ground, with parks and open spaces. Pedestrians, who currently face a nightmare getting from one side of the main road to the other, would be granted “maximum convenience”.
