Updated 6 August 2019: There were suggestions that a President from the south might make a difference in a few respects, and today, within weeks of the appointment of former Guía de Isora mayor Pedro Martín as President of Tenerife, comes the announcement that it’s now full steam ahead for the completion of the motorway ring road by closing the stretch between Santiago del Teide and El Tanque. The announcement was made at a press conference called by the insular chief along with Roads councillor Enrique Arriaga and the Canarian Government’s public works minister Sebastián Franquis.

The three said that from today they are planning, organizing and informing the public of what will be happening soon, with the priority on clearing technical and bureaucratic obstacles so that works can start at the end of November barring any unexpected problems, and thus utilising existing environmental permits. President Martín said that the plans he had inherited were for a three-lane road, like the chicken run between the Vera de Erques junction and Santiago del Teide, and that he would be working in parallel for a new projectto widen it.
