THE Mayor of Mojacar, Rosa Maria Cano, and the Minister of Development and Housing, Felipe Lopez, have signed a collaboration agreement in the Mojacar Town Hall for the construction of the second phase of the Mojacar Coastal variant.

The Mayor highlighted the importance of the Mojacar Coastal variant for the tourism sector due to the long road bottlenecks that occur, mainly in summer, on the access road to the different urban centres of the beach area.

For its part, the Minister for Development highlighted the technical cooperation between both administrations that makes it possible to construct this variant that represents a vital tourist support and that will contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of Mojacar.

The Junta de Andalucía has contributed the land already appropriated as well as the complementary construction procedures if necessary. It will also be in charge of directing the execution of the works.

The Andalucian Government tendered the variant project in 2010, dividing the performance into two phases: a first one already executed, with 3.3 km and a second one that included 5.7 km, although it was discarded for failing to consider local wildlife.

With the signing of this agreement, Mojacar City Council resumes this second phase in the section between the roundabout from the A-1203 road to Las Marinas. The route of 2.2 kilometres will cost approximately €4.5 million, according to the preliminary draft drafted by the Provincial Council of Almeria.
