The Canarian Government has opened a tender for the new LZ-5 main road that will connect Lanzarote’s airport with Argana Alta, the zone of Arrecife where the hospital is located.
The €1.6 million project will build a new stretch of main road behind what is now Playa Honda’s industrial area, connecting the airport with the hospital roundabout more directly. The new road is planned to cut down congestion in Playa Honda and the ring road leading to the hospital.
Nevertheless, the project has been criticised for destroying 346,000 square metres of rustic land. Previouys studies had showed that burying the existing Lz-2 road was the most environmentally friendly solution, but this was rejected by the Canarian Government, despite its approval of similar projects on other islands.
