Vice-President of the Canary Island government and the councillor of public works and transportation, Pablo Rodriguez, visited Mogán municipality this week. During the visit a €652,154 investment was announced, for various projects at the port of Arguineguín over the next four years. The visit included a meeting with Mogán Mayor, Onalia Buena, to talk about different necessities of the municipality. After the meeting, the entourage had visits to various locations in Mogán.
Among the claims was the need for a bypass in Pueblo de Mogán, since there have been increased traffic jams due to the diversion of vehicles from La Aldea, whih is still awaiting it’s new road to the north, as well as the increase of cyclists that pass through the area.
Mayor Bueno also asked Rodríguez about the possibility of carrying out a study to create an access road or road branches to access the GC-1 between Arguineguín and Balito. Currently, these two areas can only be accessed from the entrance at Arguineguín via the GC-500, causing a constant problem with long traffic delays.
Regarding the need to carry out actions to alleviate traffic jams on the GC-500, the Minister announced commitment from his department to try to present solutions to the problem. The counsellor will also examine the possibility of planning several branches to connect the GC-1 with areas of increasing tourist influx, such as Balito and Patalavaca. Rodriguez noted that it is necessary to have a new Roads Convention which should collect all the necessary infrastructure needs for the islands.
