The works of the new Archena bridge begin this year and will improve the accesses to the municipality (30/01/2019)

In the coming months more than 690,000 euros will be allocated for the construction of a roundabout at the Las Arboledas junction and the improvement of both urban sections of the roads of Ceutí and Villanueva

The president of the Community, Fernando Lopez Miras, said today that the new bridge of Archena on the Segura River, whose works will begin this year, "is a very ambitious project, the result of collaboration between the regional government and the City of Archena ", and responds to a historical claim of the neighbors and the consistory itself.

Lopez Miras, who today chaired the meeting of the Governing Council in Archena, stressed that the works will have an investment of more than 5 million euros.

The new infrastructure will improve access to the urban center from the A-30 highway, and is part of an integral action for the adaptation and restoration of the historic iron bridge and the construction of a new one, in parallel, to double its road capacity, increase the fluidity of the traffic and eliminate the retentions of vehicles in the main entrance way to the municipality, through the highway RM-554.

With this action, traffic retentions will be eliminated by allowing the simultaneous entry and exit of vehicles, without the need to alternate the traffic directions.

The most immediate work will focus on the reinforcement and restoration of the current bridge, which will lead to the departure of vehicles from the municipality.

Specifically, we will proceed to the diversion and withdrawal of the services hanging on this bridge (sanitation, supply, lighting.), The demolition of the pavement, sanitation and painting.

Next, the new bridge will be built, in parallel and separated from the existing one, which will have a 5 meter wide lane, a 2.5 meter sidewalk and a parapet rail.

The new bridge, which will give traffic entrance to the center, will link to the current one by means of two curves.

New investments in roads

Also, in the coming months will be made three new road activities in Archena, which will involve an investment of the regional government of more than 690,000 euros.

The first one will consist in the construction of a roundabout at the intersection of the RM-533 (Archena-Alguazas) crossing with other municipal roads, in the vicinity of the Las Arboledas Social Center to give traffic more fluidity.

Road safety will also be improved in two urban sections of the regional roads RM-522, which links with the town of Villanueva del Río Segura, and RM-533, which connects with Ceutí
