Ready for the worst
MORE than 460 Junta employees with 160 special vehicles will ensure that Andalusia’s roads remain passable this winter.
Marifran Carazo, head of the public works department of the regional government, recently shared details of the winter road plan, which will be in effect until the end of March.
Carazo reveals that particular attention will be paid to the provinces of Almeria, Malaga, Granada, Cordoba and Jaen.
Almeria, where operations are concentrated on the province’s 307 kilometers of mountain roads, can count on a team of 79 drivers and their assistants and 31 vehicles, including seven snow plows and two more if necessary. The province also has 878 tonnes of road salt in reserve.
