TF-1 resurfacing works heading further south, here’s this week’s schedule
The Tenerife Cabildo has reported that due to the ongoing road works to resurface the TF-1 motorway south carriageway, diversions will be enabled at night near the Granadilla Industrial Park. The works began last night (Sunday) and are being carried out from 10pm to 6am to minimize inconvenience to drivers during the day and guarantee safety.
The highways councillor for Tenerife, Enrique Arriaga, confirmed that the works will take more than a year to complete, as they are resurfacing and filling potholes on the 40 kilometres stretch of motorway between Adeje and Arico, for which the Cabildo at a cost of 15.4 million euros.
Here is the schedule for this week’s overnight roadworks;
Sunday 18th July: the asphalting of the slow lane and the hard shoulder between kilometre points 52.5 and 53.
Monday 19th July: works will continue to km point 53.6, also in the slow lane and the hard shoulder.
Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st July: the slow lane, hard shoulder and the deceleration lane between km points 53.6 and 54.2 will be resurfaced.
Thursday 22nd July: The work scheduled for this week will be completed between kilometres 54.2 and 54.4.
Every night the necessary diversions will be enabled to facilitate the transit of vehicles to the south especially as the junction for the Granadilla Industrial Park in a south direction will be closed.
Anyone wanting to access the Granadilla Industrial Park between 10pm and 6am must continue until junction 55, signposted for San Isidro and El Médano, to change lanes and head back in a north direction to junction 52 or to junction 50.
Likewise, vehicles coming from the Granadilla Industrial Park, who want to drive south, must go towards Santa Cruz until junction 49 (Chimiche) to make a U-turn there.
In this first phase, the works are being carried out on the slow lane and the hard shoulder of the motorway. At a later stage, the fast lane and the inner shoulder will be tackled.
This stretch of motorway is a priority for the Cabildo as it is a road through which 90,000 vehicles travel a day, which in some sections is very bad.
