Al­bufera road safety im­proved

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

Mea­sures have been taken to en­sure ac­ci­dents on the CV-500 are cut, just seven days af­ter the lat­est crash, which ended with seven peo­ple in­jured.

The road, which sud­denly goes from be­ing a highway to a small, onelane route, and runs from a round­about south of El Saler to El Perel­lonet, fores driv­ers to rapidly ad­just their driv­ing - and those who are not fa­mil­iar with the road of­ten do not re­alise, lead­ing to fre­quent ac­ci­dents or the run­ning over of lo­cal fauna.

In or­der to solve the prob­lem, sev­eral changes have been added this week.

On one hand, the speed limit has been cut from 80 kilo­me­tres per hour to 60, and on the other, the line that sep­a­rates lanes has been widened, painted red and made con­tin­u­ous, thus ban­ning over­tak­ing, and road studs have been added to fur­ther em­pha­size the pro­hi­bi­tion.
