THE Council of Majorca yesterday started the construction of a roundabout on the highly contentious and dangerous crossing at the Pollensa bypass road and Cami de l'Almadrava.
The aim of the work is to hopefully help to reduce traffic accidents on this busy stretch of road, said a spokesperson for the Council of Majorca.
This project has been needed for a long time and is going to cost the Council of Majorca around 700'000 euros. As part of the construction works, the access road, Via Argentina, at the entrance of the town will disappear, to prevent the many accidents that take place at this section of the road. The Head of Roads in the Council of Majorca, Gonzalo Aguiar, yesterday paid a visit to Pollensa in order to present this project. The works have already started and will take approximately four months to complete.
The roundabout will measure 38 metres in diametre and the lanes will be 11 metres wide, informed the Council of Majorca in a communique.
The Mayor of Pollensa, Joan Cerdà, along with the Head of Roads, Gonzalo Aguair, yesterday emphasized the importance of this project. In their opinion this new roundabout will help reduce road accidents. This crossing deals with huge amounts of traffic daily and the traffic has even increased recently when the pedestrianised road situated a few metres from the crossing, was opened.
In addition, plans to have a third lane of traffic have been built into the project, as well as resurfacing of the entire Carretera de Pollensa and constructing a new water drainage system. Furthermore, the traffic signals on the roundabout will be improved.
Improvements to street and road lighting in this area will also be a feature of the project.
