By James Parkes REP­RE­SEN­TA­TIVES of the Va­len­cia re­gional gov­ern­ment and cen­tral gov­ern­ment have met for the first time to dis­cuss im­prove­ments to the AP-7 mo­tor­way ac­cess once the toll-road be­comes a free­way on Jan­uary 1, 2020.

Fol­low­ing a meet­ing in Va­len­cia be­tween re­gional pub­lic works coun­cil­lor María José Sal­vador and pub­lic works min­istry sec­re­tary gen­eral Javier Izquierdo ‘ great for­ward steps’ were an­nounced by both par­ties.

An agree­ment was reached for cen­tral gov­ern­ment to study the 10 new junc­tions pro­posed by Va­len­cia for the mo­tor­way that links Ali­cante and Va­len­cia and Va­len­cia to Tar­rag­ona via Castel­lón.

A joint tech­ni­cal com­mit­tee will study the need for a new junc­tion in La Safor area, the link-up to the CV-60 and new ac­cesses from the N-332.

Cen­tral gov­ern­ment an­nounced it will shortly put out to ten­der con­tracts for the new ac­cess roads to the AP-7 in Oliva and Ullde­cona-Vi­narós in Castel­lón prov­ince.

Sr Izquierdo guar­an­teed ‘a new se­cure fu­ture’ for the mo­tor­ways that will be free, as con­ces­sions will not be ex­tended be­yond the Jan­uary 1, 2020 ex­piry date.

The pub­lic works min­istry is pre­par­ing a main­te­nance con­tract that will al­low mo­tor­ways to con­tinue to be used nor­mally de­spite the re­moval of tolls and in­creased traf­fic lev­els.
