Number of cars on EN125 drops drastically due to roadworks

in Algarve · 07-09-2017 12:37:00 · 1 Comments

The number of cars circulating daily on the EN125 has dropped drastically in recent times. This is being caused by roadworks on the notorious Algarve road.

A report by newspaper Correio da Manhã based on figures from the Algarve Committee for Regional Coordination and Development (CCDR Algarve) and road company Rodovias do Algarve Litoral, shows that in comparison to the beginning of the year, there has been a reduction in traffic of tens of thousands of vehicles.
The report claims that since the beginning of the year, an average of 18,000 cars have been circulating on the road daily, according to figures from Rodovias do Algarve Litoral, which is carrying out the roadwork.
This, the newspaper states, is a “massive reduction” in relation to figures from the first quarter of this year, from a report by the CCDR, which shows during the first three months of 2017, 25,556 vehicles circulated on one of the main stretches of the EN125 in Faro alone.
The CCDR’s report states the recent reduction in traffic is due to “reasons relating to maintenance work on the road”, which is forcing drivers onto secondary roads.

... Tisk, tisk.... shake-of-head
Clearly CCDR are'nt trying hard enough.
Now, if they copied the UK Highways Agency's 'road-improvment model' they could empty the whole EN125 - especially near the airport!
