Tenerife Cabildo has awarded the project of rehabilitation and landscape improvement in the link of the Autopista del Sur (TF-1) and the Via Exterior, in the municipalities of Santa Cruz and El Rosario, for an amount of 1.7 million euros.
The contract has been won by the company Acciona Construcción SA and has an execution period of six months.
The project foresees the execution of a set of actions that seeks the landscape and functional improvement of the Vía Exterior link with the TF-1, since it is a route through which numerous vehicles circulate daily. The action raises the alternation of the revegetation of the surfaces and the formation of volumes with stones of different colour tones, as well as the banks in the areas of maximum slope, which minimises the erosion of the floors and the fall of materials to the road and green areas, therefore, improving the safety conditions of both road traffic and operators in maintenance work.
At the same time, the transverse drainage of the El Pilar ravine will be improved.
In addition, for the enhancement of the landscape environment, the project has opted for the alternation between the vegetation of the natural terrain through species of the area and cobblestone strips that will form figures, such as volcanoes and stars, of ocher colours and vermi-lion.
