CEN­TRAL Gov­ern­ment has made a firm com­mit­ment and prom­ise for the go ahead of a di­rect ac­cess road from the N332 to the Ma­rina Baixa hos­pi­tal in Vi­la­joyosa.

Fol­low­ing a united col­lab­o­ra­tion not only from the hos­pi­tal board of gover­nors but also with the may­ors of the 18 towns within the Ma­rina Baixa, re­sult­ing in a pe­ti­tion with over 10,000 sig­na­tures, the Min­istry of Health and Min­istry of Pub­lic Works have an­nounced that the ten­der for the project is im­mi­nent – cer­tainly within 'the first two months of the year'.

Vi­cente Arqués, Mayor of Al­faz and a vo­cal sup­porter of the pro­posal, was de­lighted to hear the an­nounce­ment and stated that it 'was ex­cel­lent news which will of­fer max­i­mum qual­ity of care for all cit­i­zens of the Ma­rina Baixa'.

Cur­rently the road passes just 50 me­tres from the hos­pi­tal but with no di­rect exit has a lengthy de­tour, which in an emer­gency could be the dif­fer­ence be­tween life and death.

The De­part­ment of Health is also plan­ning a ma­jor ex­pan­sion of the cur­rent hos­pi­tal, which will see it dou­ble in size.

The N-332 by­pass has no di­rect ac­cess to the hos­pi­tal
