Traffic and parking prohibited in Largo do Dique, where the works begin

The start of work on the new motorway in downtown Portimão, which will connect Largo do Dique to Largo 1º de Novembro. will start on Monday, the 13th, announced the City Council of this Algarve city.

The contract has an estimated duration of 6 months and will also include «the requalification of Largo do Dique, in order to extend car circulation from Avenida Guanaré to Largo 1 de Novembro», explains the municipality.

In this sense, in a first phase, the planned works will focus on Largo do Dique, which will be fenced and the parking lot removed.




«All alterations and constraints to car circulation in the area, at public transport stops, taxis and in the car park will be duly signposted throughout the surroundings of the contract».

The Chamber of Portimão remembers having bought two houses facing Rua Júdice Biker and Largo do Dique, which were demolished last year, to "create a new road corridor in the downtown area".

«Given the impact that the intervention may have on the daily lives of motorists circulating in the area, the Municipality of Portimão requests a better understanding of all, recommending the option of alternative routes whenever possible», concludes the municipality.
