The historic road to Teror in Gran Canaria, the GC-21, will begin to be improved from next week to make it wider where it does not reach the minimum required, reduce the accident rate and improve its environment, but these improvements will affect local drivers for at least one year.
This road project has a budget of 4.2 million euros, and almost two million euros below the initial estimated cost, reported by Angel Victor Torres, Vice President and Minister of Public Works of the Government of Gran Canaria.
Angel Victor Torres made this announcement at a meeting between the Government of Gran Canaria and the Municipalities of Teror and Las Palmas, the two municipalities most affected by the changes and where drivers will be most inconvenienced. Other sectors affected by this road improvement, such as road safety agents of the Guardia Civil and other bodies also attended this meeting with the purpose of coordinating actions to try to minimise the problems for drivers over the next 12 months.
