No safety improvements for cyclists on N-332

No such luck for cyclists
NO SIGN OF IMPROVEMENT: Countless complaints have been filed by Marina Alta cycling clubs

THE N-332 as it passes through the Marina Alta shows no sign of improving for cyclists.

Recent works undertaken on the road have done nothing to increase safety, with sections of the hard shoulder narrowed at some of the road’s most dangerous points.

Richard Sixto, Deputy of the EsquerraUnida del Pais Valencia (United Left of the Valencian Country) has demanded an explanation from the central government after receiving countless complaints from Marina Alta cycling clubs.

“We do not understand why, when the road was being surfaced and the lines of the hard shoulder repainted, that it was not widened – or at least kept the same. At some points it has even been narrowed.”

Complaints have been received regarding the section of road that joins the CV-732 at Pedreguer – at this point, cyclists heading towards Gata or joining the N-332 from Pedreguer are met with little to no space between the lines of the hard shoulder and the guardrail.

Complaints have also been received regarding the N-332 Gata exit in the direction of Ondara.

Sixto further lamented the central government, accusing them of not having learned from the train of tragic accidents that have occurred on the road this year.

He is awaiting a response from Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.
