Political Pressure for N-332 Widening at Torrevieja

2 min read

Members of the regional socialist party, Herick Campos y Antonia Moreno, accompanied by local PSOE councillors, visited Torrevieja this week to look at one of the most problematic roads in the entire area, the N-332 as is passes through Torrevieja.


The stretch of road is one of the few sectors which was not widened under recent changes to the road network, and yet it is one of the busiest sections of the coastal road.

The seven-kilometre stretch not only serves as a bottleneck for traffic, it is also the location of a number of serious and fatal incidents in recent years.

Campos recalled that the previous national socialist government invested 28 million euro in widening schemes in the surrounding towns, and also explained how the former local mayor, Eduardo Dolón, had said that the widening work would commence in 2015, although nothing has ever begun after state investment was postponed until at least 2018.

With a new socialist led government regional government in Valencia, investment has started to be allocated to various projects around the area, such as the outstanding emergency coordination centre on the Orihuela Costa, and as such they intend to campaign for the work to widen the road to become a priority.

Moreno, facing the next general election said that “it is a firm commitment of the PSOE to ensure the widening as soon as possible”.
