An end to traffic problems on the N-332

The widening of the N-332 either side of Torrevieja has improved traffic flow along the coast. It has however highlighted the problems that the single carriageway through Torrevieja is causing. The section between the CV-95 and the CV-905 records an average of 33,250 cars per day. Things do get quieter from the CV-905 to La Mata which averages 11,000 vehicles a day. Everyone agreed that something had to be done but reaching agreement between the parties concerned seemed impossible.

Since that 8km  stretch of road became a black spot for accidents, the Ministry of Development decided to ban overtaking but that of course has not alleviated the problem of congestion.

Thankfully, agreement has now been reached between the three parties to go ahead and widen the road to two lanes in each direction and work should begin this year.
