The Mogán town council, on the sunny southwest of Gran Canaria, has issued several maps to indicate restricted access to various locations, as well as road closures during a major annual event planned for next weekend. The restrictions take place between 06:00 and 14:00 on Saturday, April 22 for the Anfi Challenge Mogán Gran Canaria triathlon event. The GC-500 highway will be closed to vehicle traffic between the little square of La Verga ravine – Anfi del Mar area, kilometre 30.7 – and the Taurito ravine, kilometre 42.8.
Likewise, the town hall have excused themselves for any inconvenience these measures may cause.
This will also affect the location of Global bus stops as well as taxis.

In this area, for safety reasons, pedestrians must move only through marked areas. A temporary stop for public passenger transport will be installed in this area.
Access to the Agua la Perra area will be restricted, with use only permitted for well-justified reasons, such as by public transport services, Policia Local Agents will be in charge of regulating traffic in the area. Drivers must anticipate that access to this area through the GC-500 roundabout, confluence with Calle Juan Díaz Rodríguez, can only be crossed when authorised by Local Police agents.
In the lower area of Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria, for which the GC-500 must be crossed, access will be restricted. It can only be crossed by vehicle in cases that are strictly necessary or deemed essential, following the instructions of the agents who are regulating traffic. It is recommended that, as far as possible, the public parks on Avenida Tomás Roca Bosch and nearby, then cross to the lower area near the beach on foot, making use of the underground subway passage that is in the area, to avoid crossing at the same level as the place where this major sporting event takes precedence over pedestrian access for the safety of both.
❇ Access and departures for workers and legitimate tourist transfers to the airport will be carried out until 8:00 a.m. under the supervision of the Local Police.
Restrictions in Amadores
For its part, access to the Amadores area will be through the interior of Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria using Avenida de la Cornisa to Calle Timanfaya, Calle Tenerife and Calle San Borondón, going down Calle Ministra Anna Lindh to the parking area that exists in the upper part of Amadores. To get out, you will have to drive along Calle Montaña Clara Street to Avenida Cornisa and join the GC-1 from Puerto Rico.
Restrictions will be in place from 06:00 to 14:00 for access to Tauro, El Platero and Playa del Cura. Access can only be allowed in cases of emergency or high-priority need, during the sports event, so residents must anticipate that, on April 22, and schedule their day according to the road closures of the route, which will be from 06:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
❇ Access and departure of workers and tourist transfers to the airport will be allowed until 7:30 a.m. under the supervision of the Local Police.

The main GC-1 highway should be used as an alternative route, remembering that in order to move to the Puerto de Mogán and Mogán valley area, you must go back towards Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria, in the Las Palmas direction, and then change direction back toward Mogán. Access to the lower area of Taurito will be open as usual.
