In the coming months the project will go out to public tender, where the winning company will be given a budget of 3.3 million euros to connect the LZ-2 to the main road leading to Deiland.
An idea which has been rumoured for years and wanted by residents, the underpass will cut down on the traffic issues often faced at the dreaded roundabouts the connect the two roads currently.
Having been approved this Wednesday, it’ll be put out to tender in the coming months. The budget will be paid for by the regional government.
The project is aimed to “free the current access to the roundabouts in Playa Honda from a minimum of 9000 vehicle per day.”
It will include a 5.5 metre pedestrian sidewalk, 3.5 metre bike lane, 1.9 metre strip for greenery and a 5.5 metre traffic lane.
