Palma.—A project to extend the Llucmajor dual carriageway as far as Campos is to go ahead despite budget cuts by Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, the Council of Majorca said yesterday.

Currently, technicians in the Council's Territory department headed by Mauricio Rovira are drawing up details of the project to be included in a Roads agreement to be signed with Central Government's Ministry of Public Works.

Rovira said yesterday however, that the Council does indeed recognise that Rajoy's sweeping budget cuts will inevitably have a knock-on effect on what the Council of Majorca had originally planned this year for its road building programme. The conversion of the main road between Llucmajor and Campos into a dual carriageway was a regional election promise of the Partido Popular (PP) who now have a majority on the Council, and a common aim of parties of different political colours on Campos local town council. The main road is infamous for having one of the highest accident rates on Majorca. The main aim of the dual carriageway project is to bring down the mortality rate.
