A vast improvement but…

Work on the The N332 coast road is now almost complete. The sections of the road along the Orihuela Costa and from Guardamar del Segura to La Mata are being converted into dual carriageways to ease congestion in busy periods.

That still leaves the section through Torrevieja as a bottleneck.

An agreement was drawn up in 1995 which meant that, whilst  the national government had responsibly for the road either side of the town, the Valencian regional government would take care of the 3km stretch through Torrevieja. Sadly, Improvements to the section through the town are still at the planning stage.

The same fate awaits the proposed work on the CF-95 from Orihuela to the coast. Although commitment to this project was signed in 2005 and completion was scheduled for 2010 there is still no sign of work being started.
