The aim of the plan is to improve road safety throughout the borough
The Adeje council, via the department of transport, traffic and road safety under councillor Andrés Pérez Ramos, is introducing a borough-wide traffic plan which will include improvements in the condition of the roads and pavements and lead to better and safer road conditions for all residents and drivers.
The councillor responsible said “we are working to improve and guarantee the safety of individuals, so it is important to upgrade the horizontal and vertical (upright) street signalling along frequently used roads and pathways, as well as ensuring that those less used are also in prime condition.
Among the scheduled works are the signalling in Playa Paraíso, Fañabé, Armeñime, Los Menores, La Postura, Los Olivos and the centre of Adeje town. Pérez Ramos added that very soon they would also be repainting in the Charco del Valle, El Galeón and Las Torres neighbourhoods”.
Another important inclusion in the plan is upgrading streets and roads for those with reduced mobility, with increased allocated parking throughout the borough, eliminating many impediments that currently exist, and improve access to pedestrian zones.
The councillor added that “the council counted upon the patience of the residents during the work who understood that these improvements are necessary to ensure as much as possible road safety in all the borough’s neighbourhoods, streets and avenues”. He explained that in parallel the council were also continuing with talks in schools to underline the importance of road safety to Adeje’s next generation of drivers and road users.
