Portimão will create a road connection between the industrial area of ​​Vale da Arrancada and EN125

There are more works underway to make traffic in the city of Portimão more fluid

In the coming months, Portimão City Council will build a road that will connect the industrial area of ​​Vale da Arrancada to the EN125, a project that the municipality hopes will greatly facilitate "the circulation of the many goods vehicles that operate in this area daily" and alleviate " the road pressure on one of the main access roads to the city».

The works, which should start next August and finish at the beginning of 2025, represent a municipal investment of around 700 thousand euros.

They aim to «drain a significant part of the traffic that daily crosses the northern part of the city towards Vale da Arrancada and the business area of ​​Coca Maravilhas, using for this purpose the road that passes next to CHUA – Hospital de Portimão».

The new road will allow vehicles, especially larger ones, with loads and goods, to operate in an access to be created next to the future Nova Vila Retail Park, currently under construction, and to the warehouses of EMARP – Empresa Municipal de Águas e Residos de Portimão.

The intervention also takes into account the fact that “the construction of a significant amount of housing at controlled costs is planned for this area of ​​the city, thus allowing residents and private drivers not to be affected by the constant traffic of heavy goods, which will benefit from a more direct passage through the area».

Other interventions are planned or already underway, with the aim of making local traffic more fluid, examples of which are the viaduct that will connect Rua Infante Dom Henrique, with a detour via Rua Comandante Carvalho Araújo, to the Moinhos de Maré roundabout, next to the Park of Portimão Fairs and Exhibitions, as well as the new road that will connect this area to the hospital.
