THE Municipality of Mutxamel and the Diputación de Alicante have combined to improve roadways in and around the town.
After protests from many of the local residents, the main road of La Venteta – the CV-823 and one of the main points of entry to Mutxamel from the local housing estates of La Huerta and Río Park – has been made safer. One of the most welcome enhancements has been the lighting which was absent prior to the works and made driving at night very dangerous.
As well as the new roundabout at the southern access point to the town, 25 LED streetlights have been installed along the 1,200m stretch from La Venteta.
The entire road has seen road markings repainted, a bike and pedestrian lane installed and new central road islands built to reduce speed.
The cost of the entire project was €40,000.
